Cron job in Windows NT?

In Unix, we can set up cron job to automatically execute any task at a specific time

So in NT, is there any way to set up a "Cron job"? I know SQL Server 7's DTS package can do this, but does NT OS provide any command to do this?

sure there is. It's called AT

just type at at the prompt (no pun intended).

if you want a series of commands, create a batch file, and schedule the batch file (which in NT has an extension of .cmd)
