IE and Cache problem

Hello All,

The application we have generates one report. This report can be generated again and again for different dates. In my IE default setting is "Check for newer version of stored pages - Automatically". With this setting the IE displays report from Cache even though I generate the report for different dates. For instance for 11/29 it displays 11/29 report. When I run 11/28 report it still displays 11/29 even though content is different.

It works fine if I set "Check for newer version of stored pages - Every visit to the page". But this makes application very slow as I have lot of images in the menu screen which comes with the report.

I thought if we have "Automatically" option set the IE will not the pull page from Cache if there is any change in the content. The content of the report is inside the DIV tags. Will it cause any problems ? Any other suggestions ?

Thanks much.
