I need to Manually Refresh each page I visit - can I stop this from happening?

Each day we have a set of accounts data that is fed into a HTML page, this can then be viewed via our Intranet.  The problem is that everytime we look at this page we see a previous set of results.  I have tried deleting the temparary Internet files and setting the settings to look for New Pages of stored versions evertime the page is visited but it still doesn't seem to work.

Is there a way I can put somthing in the HTML that will force the data to be refresed/the newest version.

Any help on this would be appreciated.

Cheers

In the HTML... kinda - but it doesn't work very well. What you should be doing is setting your HTTP headers to include suitable cache instructions.

if you want to try a javascript solution, you can do this in your links to the .html page:

<A  href="accountsData.html"  onclick='this.href="accountsData.html?rnd="+Math.random();return true;' > accounts data </a>

Adding the random value makes the link unique each time, so it isn't cached.
