How can I make sure that a user does not hit reload after a script processes the information passed to it? So the script does not get executed again?

Thanks....

as in, never ever again, or just within a certain amount of time?

Please, take the time and do some research and find out how much it would have cost you to get your help from a decent paid-for source. A "roll-of-the-dice" freelancer will charge you $5-$15/hr. A decent entry level freelancer will charge you around $15-30/hr. A professional will charge you anywhere from $50-$100/hr. An agency will charge anywhere from $100-$250/hr. Think about all this when soliciting for help here. Think about how much money you are making from the work you are asking for help on. No, we do not expect you to pay for the help given here, but donating a few bucks is a fraction of the cost of what you would have paid, shows your appreciation, helps motivate people to keep offering help without the pricetag, and helps make this a higher quality free-help community :)

okay so add a timestamp field to your table, associated with the user, and then have your script check the timestamp. if it is not old enough, then give the user an error message instead of executing the normal script.
