    Default Avoiding re-submitting data

    Hi there,<BR><BR>Lets say you have a page which updates a database and after this page has been called the user presses the &#039;refresh&#039; button on their browser or navigates back to it using the &#039;back&#039; button.<BR><BR>When this happens in IE a message box come up and says that in order to reload the page the data which was previously sent to the page has to be sent again.<BR><BR>Is there anyway to stop this information being resubmitted? Basically I want to avoid a user from inadvertently updating a database twice, especially when doing so could cause an error or mess up the database with mulitiple copies of data.<BR><BR>Thanks,<BR><BR>Ian.
