i am working with classic asp,when i refresh my main page ,its working fine but my child page(ie when i submit main page and move to next page),when i try to refresh child page i am getting this error.

 "To display the webpage again, Internet Explorer needs to resend the information you have previously submitted. If you were making a purchse, you should click Cancel to avoid a duplicate transaction. Otherise, click Retry to display the webpage again."

How to refresh page without getting this message
thanks in advance

    Hi tracy_p

    Obviously this child is a form. you could use form.submit() event because the contents of this child in in response of this form submit.

    I doubt how useful will be this because this means to re-submit contents on each refresh.

    you can't avoid it if that  page has dynamic data and needs to re-retrieve the data (ie a form requesting stuff to make the page up)

    tracy_p--That message may not be an error message, but a notice from the webpage what is going to happen if you refresh.  
    Why are you trying to refresh?  Perhaps better to open a new instance of IE?
