MSAccess 2000 on a windows 2000 Network. I have a table that I would like to copy out of the database into another database. I have a macro to do that but what I'm trying to do is schedule for that macro to run every night. I seen a third party app that can schedule a macro it was like 35 bucks. I'm just looking for any alternatives.

Hello jaze95,

Use the Windows scheduler to start Access with your database. Look at Scheduled tasks in Control Panel.  You can specify a macro to run when the database opens in the command line using the /X macroname switch.
See command line in Help.
