You can simply start a jog using the "sp_start_job" SP.To run this you must have ur SQLAgent running on ur server.
Any way u can set it to start at the time of Windows is starting.Apply this Code and see.It will solv ur problem.Else u can
use SQL DMO to do this work.First try this and see.

Dim AdoCON As ADODB.Connection
Dim strSQL as String

With AdoCON

        strSQL = "USE <Your DatabaseName>"
        .Execute  strSQL
        strSQL = "EXEC sp_start_job @job_name = '<Your DatabaseName>'"
       .Execute  strSQL
End With

To Apply above code u must connect to the SQL Sever through a Connection String (AdoCON.Connectionstring= .......)
And Open it (AdoCON.Open( )). Those r normal ADO functions.
