I have a drop down box which contains all the records in a sql table. I can delete the record from another asp page and return to my main search page. When i look again at the drop down box the record still exists in the select list even though it has been removed from the dbase table. i need to be able to refresh my recordset. I close my dbase connection and recordset at the end of every asp page and reconnect each time a page is opened. If I use the shift key and click refresh then the drop down list updates correctly. I'm going around in circles at the moment and would appreciate any help. Cheers Paul Digby.
