I have page1.asp that contains text boxes etc. and a "submit" button. I have <form method=Post action=page2.asp>, which works fine. However, I do not want the page2.asp to be loaded into the browser window, I want to call the page2.asp to do the processing, and then simply refresh page1.asp.  page1.asp contains a table from a database, and the user adds and deletes records, so I wish to just refresh page1.asp to show the updated db values. Thanks

on page1.asp and page2.asp, you should have these lines

<%
  Option explicit
  Response.Buffer = TRUE
  Response.Expires = 0
  Response.ExpiresAbsolute = Now - 1
%>

OK, great, except I had to comment out the Option explict. if I don't then there is an error in the line -
connString = "DRIVER={Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb)}; "

the error is that the variable connString is undefined. Do I really need the Option explicit?

Yes, you really need Option Explicti, and you get rid of that error messagfe by adding a line, BEFORE the line

connString = "DRIVER={Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb)}; "


that reads

Dim connString  


That will DECLARE a variable, with the name connString

Option Explicit FORCES you the DECLARE every variable used in your program (that way if you MIS-SPELL a variable name, the program will NOT run).  Without Option Explicit, every variable is automatically created when it is encountered - so that a mis-spelled variable name becomes a completely NEW variable, and that can cause errors that you will be unable to find, easily.
