Grid in IFRAME refresh?

I am using IFRAME to display a grid on a page that is loading data from a CSV file. The CSV file is being updated with new records periodically during the day. If I refresh my browser (IE 6.0), the grid within the IFRAME does not pick-up the new records that were added to the CSV file. Now, if I close my browser window or open a new browser window then the grid is displayed correctly with the new records. Can someone advise as to how you can refresh the grid within the IFRAME without opening a new browser session?

Any help would be appreciated.

I believe the grid does request the CSV file on each refresh but the file is served from the browser cache instead of the web server. It should be possible to prevent caching for particular files using the web server config (i.e. .htaccess for Apache).

Thank you for pointing me in the right direction. I am using an MS IIS 5.0 server and have found a setting under "Default Web Site Properties" under the tab "HTTP Headers" and selecting "Enable Content Expiration" and setting it to "Expire Immediately" has solved the problem of refreshing the grid in the IFRAME. Thank you for your insite, and keep up the great work!

I had a similar problem: the grid wasn't refreshing when the XML data loads changes. I solved this by adding a unique number to the end of the URL loaded, like so:

var table = new Active.XML.Table;
// N.b.: '?ran=" + new Date().getTime()' is added to prevent the 
//XML file from being cached by the browser.
table.setProperty("URL", "/path/to/file/fileName.xml?ran=" 
                         + new Date().getTime());
