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! :D

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.

Look at WIndows Scripting Host...

www.devguru.com should have some info.

the link in my sig is actually for WSH :thumbsup:

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 :p http://www.splinterware.com/products/wincron.htm

wsh is used in .vbs files a lot, probably in vb applications too (i dont know i use c++ and java:p), ive never seen it used in asp though
