submit button in asp

P: n/a
hi all,
*****short version of my problem****
I used this code...

<input type="button" name="btn1" onClick="document.location.reload
(true)" value="Reload">

but it only works once! After I hit it once, all subsequent button hits
just
keep showing old data. Does anyone know what is wrong?

****long version of my problem****
basically i have a text box that you can type something in and then hit
submit. the data in the text box gets saved into an access database
and I have the *action* parameter of the form set to the same asp page
to bring up the page again, but I check and see if there is something
stored in the database and it puts it back on the screen. (You end up
with the same page that comes poplulated with the last value you typed
into it except in my case I only get it to stick around once!)
I have turn off a caching using the
response.expires = -1
response.addheader "pragma", "no-cache"
...etc...
if anyone could help i would greatly appreciate!!!

How about:

http://grizzlyweb.com/webmaster/javascripts/refresh.asp
window.location.reload(true);

Or:

http://www.htmlgoodies.com/tutors/refresh.html
onClick="history.go(0)"

or:

http://developer.irt.org/script/82.htm
onClick="window.location.href=window.location.href "

Ok thanks acutally i have tried
window.location.reload(true);
window.history.go(0)
and they dont work!

but i haven't tried

window.location.href=window.location.href
so i will try this first thing tomorrow.

what i cant believe is that why is it so hard?
forgeting the database..is there just a simple way that when you hit
the submit button, the data in the text box remains? oh well, thanks
for your help!
