Run ajax every 5 secs

Hi,

I need to run a query every 5 secs from to start when window loads.
This should simulate a person to person negotiation.
Here is my script:

<script>
    $(document).ready(function(){
      refreshTable();
    });

    function refreshTable(){
        $('#tableHolder').load('negotiation1.asp',
               {seller:'<%=session("partner")%>'},
               function(){
           setTimeout(refreshTable, 5000);
        });
    }
</script>

the html later:
<div id="tableHolder">....</div>

negotiation1.asp is expecting "seller" parameter as POST query.
However the parameter is not working - I get the table without contents.
Any ideas?

what do you want to ask javascript to send a server side variable (a session variable partner)?
read it directly from the server, don't send it as parameter

    function refreshTable(){
        $.ajax({
            url: 'negotiation1.asp',
            data: {seller: '<%=session("partner")%>',
            type: 'POST',
            success: function(response) {

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Correction - missing }
$(function(){
  setInterval(refreshTable, 1000);
});

function refreshTable(){
	$.ajax({
		url: 'negotiation1.asp',
		data: {seller: '1'},
		type: 'POST',
		success: function(response) {
			$('#tableHolder').html(response);
		}
	});
}

To be more specific - it seems that the "setInterval" is not working

Are there any errors?
setInterval is a javascript function going forever.

I tested my code on IE8 and it works perfectly - so somewhere in your code you have another problem that is causing it to fail on IE

What version of IE is this not working on
What version of JQuery are you using - if 2.x check the jquery.com site for compatibility with older versions of IE.

Well I stripped it from anything else - and it still not working on IE (no problem in Chrome and Firefox)... Here is the current code:

mainpage.asp:
<!DOCTYPE html>

<html>
<head>
<script src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.11.1/jquery.min.js"></script>

<script>
$(function(){
  setInterval(refreshTable, 1000);
});

function refreshTable(){
      $.ajax({
            url: 'negotiation4.asp',
            success: function(response) {
                  $('#tableHolder').html(response);
            }
      });
}
</script>
</head>

<body>
      <div id="tableHolder">Table will appear here....</div>
</body>
</html>

and here is the current negotiation4.asp:
<table border='1'>
            <tr>
                  <th>Time</th>
                  <th>From</th>
                  <th>to</th>
                  <th>Comment</th>
            </tr>
            <tr>
                  <td>1</td>
                  <td>2</td>
                  <td>3</td>
                  <td>4</td>
            </tr>
      </table>

I'm trying to add rows manually to the table in negotiation4.asp and upload it to the server.
Firefox and Chrome shows me the changes that I made without having to refresh the main page.
IE is not showing the changes - even when I'm refreshing the mainpage page manually.

replace :
 url: 'negotiation4.asp',
by :
 url: 'negotiation4.asp?t=' + new Date().getTime(),
