I want to use a button to reload an ASP Page

I have a site that I inherited. Is uses ASP and AJAX.
The page has a field that when changed will impact a calculated value.
There are functions to recalculate each time the page loads.

I could just ask the user to refresh but they get the dialog box "retry etc...."
So I would like to use Onclick to retrieve the same page.
The page needs an argument to return the correct record.

I can't get the correct syntax and could use some help!

The page is accessed in 2 ways so the following gets the record ID:
RecordID = TRIM(request.querystring("id"))   <!-- First try to read the URL -->
IF LEN(RecordID)<1 THEN
  RecordID = TRIM(request.Form("issue"))   <!-- Next try reading from the POST -->
END IF

The button code follows but does nothing
&nbsp;&nbsp;<button type="button" name="Reload" onclick="window.location.href='http://servicetools.corp.com/aim/viewSingleIssue?id='<%=RecordID%>'">Update Calculated Values</button>

Thank you!

And I think that by now you figured out that initial button has to be replaced with input attribute:

<input type="button" name="Reload"  Value="Update Calculated Values" onclick="location='http://servicetools.corp.com/aim/viewSingleIssue?id=<%=RecordID%>'">
