refresh sub frame to display excel file

I have a frame set with 3 frames
- header (top)
- contents (left)
- main (right)

contents frame is an asp that displays files(as links) for a specific directory in tree format. when someone click on one of the file link, it will open up the file (excel in this case) in the main frame.

Most of the files are excel spreadsheets, when the 1st excel opens all the data from different sheets are display correctly, but when I click on the 2nd and on spreadsheets, the sheets starts to disappear when I click on it. I've figure out that if I hit the refresh button after the 2nd excel, the disappearing act will not happen.

Now I just need to know if there is a way to automatically refresh a subframe (main in my case) so that the excel will display data correclty!

Thanks
Ku
