Nedd help with page refresh sending recent input each time

Nedd help with page refresh sending recent input each time

Nedd help with page refresh sending recent input each time

The page works fine but if I refresh the page it submit the last item chosen in the drop down again. Each subsequetn page refresh adds it again. I want to be able to allow page refresh so the page can see new items entered that may not have come from this page.
How can I set it to ""  so when it refreshes it won't do anything?


 <form Name="myForm" method="POST" action="<%=MyPickup%>">

    Set Conn = server.CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
    Set RS1 = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Recordset")
    Set RS2 = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Recordset")
    Set RS3 = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Recordset")

    Conn.Open "driver=SQL Server;server=;uid=login;pwd=Password;database=mydb;"    
    'load combo box
    SQLString1 = "Select * From Names Order by Lastname;"
    RS2.Open SQLString1,  Conn
    <font size="5">
    <select name="names" size=1 onChange="javascript: document.forms['myForm'].submit()" style="font-family: Arial; font-size: 14pt">
             <option selected value="Choose">Choose</option>
            <%do while not rs2.EOF%>
             <option value="<%Response.write RS2.fields("Lastname")%>"><%Response.write RS2.fields("Lastname")%></option>
        </select></font> <font size="5">&nbsp;
        <%'insert into database only if name is not blank
        response.write "name : " & name
    If name = ""  or name = "Choose" then  
        response.write "Add a name"
           SQLString = "Insert into Transactions (Tag,Lastname,Firstname,Position) Select Tag,Lastname,Firstname,0 as Position From Thenames Where Lastname = '" & name  & "'"
        RS1.Open SQLString,  Conn

    'refresh table
        SQLString = "Select * from Transactions Order by PickupTime DESC;"
        RS1.Open SQLString,  Conn
    'get record count
        SQLString3 = "Select count(*) TotalRecs from Transactions;"
        RS3.Open SQLString3,  Conn
    <Table Border="1" cellspacing="0" style="font-family: Arial; font-size: 18pt; border-collapse: collapse" bordercolor="#111111" cellpadding="0" >
             <td bgcolor="#008080"><font color="#FFFFFF">Total Recs</font></td>
             <td bgcolor="#008080" colspan="2" align="center">
             <font color="#FFFFFF">&nbsp;
             <%Response.write Rs3.fields("TotalRecs")%>

            <td bgcolor="#C0C0C0">Position</td>
            <td bgcolor="#C0C0C0">Name</td>
            <td bgcolor="#C0C0C0">PickupTime</td>
        do while not rs1.EOF%>
            <td><%Response.write RS1.fields("Position")%>&nbsp;</td>
            <td><%Response.write RS1.fields("Lastname")%>&nbsp;</td>
            <td><%Response.write RS1.fields("PickupTime")%>&nbsp;</td>
        set Conn =nothing
        set Rs1 = nothing
        set Rs2 = nothing
        set Rs3 = nothing

    End if%>

Redirect with a 302 response after submission has been processed.
