html2excel, caching problem

I got the html2excel custom tag at
www.coldfusionnet.com/tag_gallery.cfm

It works well on first use, but after that the resulting .xls file is cached.  Unless you close your browser and re-open, you will never get a fresh list.

The server's file will continue to be dynamic, but the client's cache will only request a new file after the temp has been removed (after closing the window).

Is there any way to fix these so I don't have to close and re-open the browser?

P.S.
The answer has nothing to do with the cfheader tag or
Cachedwithin="#createTimeSpan("0","0","5","0")#" in the query, already tried.

The obvious way to do this would be to have the name of the excel sheet changing for each request. This might require a little bit of clever code to manage the number of files on the server, but it should stop the browser from caching the data.
