Calculation Question

I need to call a SQL SP with this following idea:

Start January 10th
Run once every 2 weeks until January 10th

I don't know how to code VB for this.  I know how to code the following:

 Do While frmmain.Caption = "Employee Time Tracking Tool"
    DoEvents
   If Hour(Now) = 6 And Minute(Now) = 35 Then

    Set qy9ActiveConnection = conn1
    qy9.CommandType = adCmdStoredProc
    qy9.CommandText = "sp"
    qy9.Execute

If you want to run something routinely you need to know when the last time it was run was.  Once you have the last time it was run you can establish a time for it to run again.  Example...

Say you store in the database or an INI file the Last run date and time.

Retrieve the date and time and it is 1/10/02 at 6:30 PM

You would want to add two weeks to the date

Dim dtLastRun as Date
Dim dtNextRun as Date

dtLastRun = "1/10/02"

dtNextRun = dtLastRun + 14

if date >= dtNextRun then
    'Check time if you want.  If it is 6:30 or after then run it
end if

Let me know if I am off base here or if you would like more info.

If you would provide more info. on what you are doing someone may be able to share a good solution.

If you have a routine that runs at least once each day, then you can do this:

Dim vTestDate as variant
vTestDate = CDate("1/10/2003)"

If DateDiff("d", Date(), vTestDate) Mod 14 = 0 Then

   Set qy9ActiveConnection = conn1
   qy9.CommandType = adCmdStoredProc
   qy9.CommandText = "sp"
   qy9.Execute

End if

What this will do is tell you if the current date is (2 Weeks * n) away from the critical date.

Thanks to all responders.  I knew it had to be something simply but when you're stressed you can't think clearly.

I think this should work fine.

Thanks,
