My classic ASP page displays the records from a SQL Server database table. I wonder if it's possible for the page to auto-refresh every time when users insert a new record.
Thank you for your help

How would the page know a new record was inserted?

You could have the page auto-refresh...
     <meta http-equiv="refresh" content="30">
...where "content" is the time in seconds to refresh the page.

So I guess auto-refresh is the only solution, whether a record is inserted or not...
There's no way for the page to know if a new record was submitted?

No, the page in your browser is static HTML once you get it.  Unless you add javascript / AJAX that checks with the server or use the meta refresh, nothing will change on the screen.

No, because the client (browser) is disconnected from the (web) server.
