Is there any function for this to be done whitout using an timer control?

you better use the scheduler from Windows that will launch your app at 6.

Personnaly, I would not use a VB app itself to wait for its time. I prefer having a scheduler, schedule the job, and free resources after the job is complete. Also, when schedule, the PC doesn't need to be logged.

But I don't have problem splitting points.
