Display problem - refresh and external data source
I have a problem with the following code, which dsplays and updates from an XML file every 60 seconds. When refreshing, it periodically generates an error while accessing the xml data.
I used 'document.write(xml.parseError.url)' which pointed to the xml file as the problem. The xml file is sent to the server by FTP from another source. I suspect that the conflict may be from the Refresh attempt being blocked as the file is being updated from the external source.
I had a thought of getting the xml provider to add an 'ok.txt' file to their transfer, delete as 1st step, send xml, then send ok.txt again. Mean while, my script starts with a conditional 'if' that looks for the ok.txt prior to execution.
Am I on the right track here, and if so ...... HELP
