IE6 refresh not working

By munrrob ·
I am developing an asp page using VBScript looking at a SQL server 2000 database running in PWS using IE6. I have got a page on which I make changes to but every time I refresh the page the changes do not appear. My operating system is Windows 2k.
I have gone into options and selected refresh page on every visit but this does not work. I have deleted every temp internet file I can find on my laptop with no difference.
This is causing me a real headache and I would appreciate any ideas that may help.

This is a problem that I ran into developing pages at work. The solution that I found works best for me when this problem presents itself is to use a META tag to keep the page from being cached. In order for this to work, you have to edit your page and add the code below, then clear the browsers cache before loading the page. Just in case you're not sure how to do that, open the browser, click Tools then Internet Options. Click the Delete Files... button on the resulting dialog box then click Ok or Cancel.

Now for the page itself. Due to the way that IE loads pages, you will need to edit your page so it looks like these examples:

At the top of the page it should look like this:

<HTML>
<HEAD>
<TITLE>---</TITLE>
<META HTTP-EQUIV="Pragma" CONTENT="no-cache">
</HEAD>
<BODY>

and at the bottom it should look like this:

</BODY>
<HEAD>
<META HTTP-EQUIV="Pragma" CONTENT="no-cache">
</HEAD>
</HTML>

Doing this will ensure that IE sees that you do not want it to cache the page and you should see your changes when you reload or refresh the page.
