    Automatic server calls

    I'm thinking of getting a script that performs a database operation on a regular basis. How would I code that? Some code that will automatically call a script/perform an operaiton at a regular and specific intervals!

    You could create a web service that performs your operation for you. I'm sure if you do a quick search for web service you'd find some useful information.

    the link in my sig is actually for WSH

    if you have a mssql server i think you can schedule on there, otherwise look up a windows scheduler, i think i have used this one before, but there are several that call themselves wincron http://www.splinterware.com/products/wincron.htm
