This is available in Windows 2000 go to Scheduler (START-ACCESSORIES-SYSTEM TOOLS-SCHEDULER) Add New Task. go thru the wizard-it comes up with a list of .exe files it finds on your machine. Choose BROWSE and browse to your db. In the wizard, choose OPEN ADVANCED PROPERTIES WHEN FINISHED (or you can always right-click on the task later and choose PROPERTIES).
1) if you only have one version of Access on your machine: in the RUN area: You will want to put the full path to the db instead of just the drive letter, of course in case you ever map the server to a diff drive. "\\app-evt-23\Data\Backend.mdb" in the START IN area: "\\app-evt-23\Data\"
2) If you have more than one copy of Access on your machine you have to first put the path of the Access version you want the db to open in. you'll have to mess around with it, but put in this format, substituting the path to your Access.exe and then the path to the mdb file: in the RUN area: "Path to Access.exe" "Path to .mdb file" (space in between)
in the START IN area: "C:\Program Files\Office97\Office\"
This should be all you need. It will fill in your domain/userid and prompt you for your password. Then just do your schedule. If you only want it done M-F, choose WEEKLY then M,T,W,Th,F. you can also goof around with multiple schedules.
