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

You don't really want to run the program 24/7 just to run a procedure every two weeks.

Use task scheduler to run every week.  When it runs, just check if it's a valid week to run it.
