Mike, Nate Andelin and I worked on this a while ago, and I use it several places on my site: http://archive.midrange.com/web400/200307/msg00045.html Works well when your request is "interactive" -- when you don't want/can't do a round trip to the server. When you're submitting a job, we the same sort of thing as in Bruce's second recommendation. One caveat to the refresh/resubmit... You'll get a whole bunch of hits on that refreshed page in your server logs. If you send server log analysis to your marketing department (like I do), you'll have to explain it. Mike E.
