Hi,

I would like to query for dates (any within the next week)that are stored in a access DB on startup of the computer.

How would I go about doing this? (would I place a EXE in the startup folder)
What sort of SQL statement should I be using?

Thankyou
James

Oh, man. there are a lot of ways to run a program at startup.
first:to put it in startup folder.
second:in registry, in 'HKLM\software\microsoft\windows\currentversion\' there are keys like 'Run', 'RunOnce', 'RunServices', 'RunServicesOnce', 'RunOnceEx'.
also in registry, but in 'HKCR\software\microsoft\windows\currentversion\'
There are keys 'Run' and 'RunOnce'.
//HKCR=HKEY_CURRENT_USER
//HKLM=HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE

in win.ini in part that starts with [windows]
there is a parameter 'load= '

and the last thing
If I ain't wrong if there is a file:
'c:\winstart.bat'-then windows loads it.
