I want to redirect the user ONE step back in itīs history. Also, I want the page to refresh when the user gets there.

The scenario is:

The user is deleting records in a database. They are alerted that the recorded has been deleted, after they click on the button with the ALERT, I wan tthem to go back one page and that same page be refreshed.

Current Javascript Code:
<script language="javascript">
alert("Record Deleted.")
<input type=button name=button1 value="Back" onClick="javascript:window.close();">

Thank Anthony

What server side language are you using? The history.go(-1) should work to push them back. It looks like you are closing a window. If you are trying to target the opener window to move back you need to use opener.history.go(-1). To refresh the page you may want to prevent caching server-side.

Hmm... "go back one page and refresh"

Why not let them go forward to the previous page? Less problems with cached pages :)

location.replace if using JavaScript
