Default Disabling Refresh

I have a page that updates records in a database however when the user his refresh in the browser the record is updated again. This also happens on pages that insert unless i check for whether the primary key (unique string not an int)already exists,

Is there any way to prevent the data from being updated/entered again

Thanks Chris

You can store a session variable for each page that makes a query in the database. If the session variable does NOT exist, create it and perform your query. If the variable DOES exist, then you know the query has already been performed.

Take care,
