Notes seems to remember old forms

In our environment, we run Lotus Domino 7, and most of the clients are Lotus Notes 5.0.4.  We have a couple of databases and users that have this rather strange problem.
User A and User B both access the same Lotus Notes database.  User A modifies a form in the database and saves it.  Other users (C, D, E, etc.) open the database and see the changes.  However, when User B opens the database, he sees the forms as they were prior to modification.  It is as if the information is being cached in the client somehow.  How do I make it so that all users see current information?

Is User B properly replicating to the Notes Server? My first thought would be that this database is not checked in the Replication screen of User B.

1) make sure tht you try the refresh button

2) Check that a local replica is not being used.

3) Close the client and delete cache.ndk file

4) make sure the user is accessing via the same server.


I hope this helps !

Just a small point, with a R5 client it will be cache.dsk not cache.ndk

Here's how I troubleshoot these problems:

1) If the user is working form a database on a server, then the local cache is not refreshing properly.

Things to try:

      - compact the user's workspace.
      - restart the user's client.
      - delete the user's cache file (cache.dsk or cache.ndk).

2) If the user is working from a local replica, then the local database is not in sync with the copy on the server.

Things to try:

      - replicate the local database.
      - clear the replication history for the local database then replicate again.
      - delete the local replica and create a new one.
