1. Go to Start / Programs / Accessories / System Tools / Scheduled Tasks
2. Add New Task / Continue / Search
3. Choose your batch file for daily work and enter first time setting
4. Enter Username and password as required (this is mandatory in w2k; tasks doesn't work without!)
5. Mark "Advanced" an go on
6. Now choose the time table and further adjust your settings. You can enter repeating intervalls (every 5 Minutes) after going to Advanced settings.

Hint: You can enter some checking lines in your batchfile to verify if it's running well.
Look here:

------------------------------------

date /T >>c:\batch.log
time /T >>c:\batch.log
echo ================ >>c:\batch.log

-----------------------------------

Copy the lines between the dashes into your Batchfile too and you can check c:\batch.log whether your job is running or not.

you can use the command "AT" in a bat file to schedule runtimes of programs.  for syntax, open command promt and type  


at ?
