refresh browser page after an update

I am using Flash CS3 and  ASP to update a database in MsAccess. Everything works fine.  The problem is that when I update the database and the SharedObject, I call the domain (to reflect the changes), BUT IT LOADS THE OLD INFORMATION. I need to EXIT or CLOSE the browser, and open the website again, and IT SHOWS THE CORRECT DATA.  I guess this has to do something with cache or expiration, but I can not figure it out.
The code below is after it has CORRECTLY updated the database, and I am ready to show the CURRENT UPDATE.  I thought that by calling the domain again, it will re-fresh it NUT NOT :(

Thanx

    var my_so:SharedObject = SharedObject.getLocal("tipocambio", "/");
    my_so.data.compra = compra.text;
    my_so.data.venta = venta.text;
    my_so.flush();
      getURL("http://www.bestratelaredo.com");

Can you try to validate if files saved?

var my_so:SharedObject = SharedObject.getLocal("tipocambio", "/");
    my_so.data.compra = "compra";
    my_so.data.venta = "venta";
    my_so.flush();
my_so.close();

my_so= SharedObject.getLocal("tipocambio", "/");
trace( my_so.data.compra);
trace(my_so.data.venta);

Yes, it validates

You don'n need to close a browser.

As soon you execute flush command the data it saved.

Why do you want to close a browser?

Ohhh I guess I didn't explain correctly, sorry
It does update the SharedObject  
THE PROBLEM is that I load the fields in the SharedObject  AND DISPLAY THEM IN MY BROWSER
but those values ARE NOT UPDATED unless I close the browser and load the page again
I have a button in Flash CS3 that performs the ASP, Flush, etc... IT WORKS FINE, but I am not able to see the update immediateley, UNLESS I CLOE THE BROWSER AND LOAD THE PAGE AGAIN

Thanx for ur help, sorry for the original explanation :(

The problem is probably in Flash. It caches urls. Force flash to reload the url properly, for example by adding a time dependent value in the querystring.
