I wish to run a task which will compact my Access database overnight, it works on one PC running windows 95 but the same task will not execute on 98? The run line reads C:\PROGRA~1\MICROS~1\OFFICE\MSACCESS.EXE D:\Data97.mdb /compact" Now I did want this task to work across the network and activate the drive on the sever, but for now I would be happy to see it work on my local drive. I set the time and date and whenthe clock reaches that time ....nothing and the schedule then sets the next run time to the following day as it is a daily task. Can anyone help????? Its beyond me is there any test I could run to see if schedule is working correctly ???????
