I am trying to set up my access program so the user can create a task from my program that shows up in the windows task scheduler.  I have been able to accomplish this using both the NetScheduleJobbAdd() function and the AT scheduler.   My problem is that I cant figure out how to pass account information (ie: account name, and password) with either.  The task I create from my program are not able to run because of this, but if I manually creat a task to run and put in account info, it runs fine.  Thank you in advance for your help, John

Only members of the Administrators local group can successfully execute the NetScheduleJobAdd function on a remote server.

Try the NetScheduleJobAddAsUser
