Topic: Calc and Clearing Fields Questions

I have a couple of questions.

This is one of the Forms my questions are about:

If that doesn't work, go to
Scroll down, click on 'Forms' (Black Menu)
Then find the FI 51B form.

1st Question. This form has many calculations in it. When opening the form, it is very slow to load, and tabbing from field to field takes a bit of time too. It's a bit tedious. Is there any way to speed this up? The above form is 505KB.. which doesnt seem too big, but perhaps it is. It has been saved with the save as... command to reduce it's size.

2nd question: This seems only to be happening with the 51 series.. If you open the form in IE (I'm using IE6) and enter fields, then close the form, then open the form again (either by closing the browser or hitting the back button) the fields come back as still being filled out. We don't want this to happen. We want the form to clear when it is opened. What would be causing this? Would the browser cash not be cleared? I don't know why this would happen on the 51 series, but it's not happening on the other forms. (I have only dealt minimally with the 51s, so maybe there is a setting my coworkers have set that I don't know about).

I would love any advice or ideas. :)
