Can someone show me how to create a SQL JOB from a VB.NET program.  I would like to develop a VB.NET program that allows users to schedule jobs for a certain function.  Has anyone ever done this before?

sp_add_job is your starting point:
http://doc.ddart.net/mssql/sql70/sp_adda_13.htm

from there, see also:
sp_add_jobschedule
sp_add_jobstep

and of course:
sp_start_job
to start it explicitely

Hi there,

If using SQL Server 2000, I would suggest you could use SQLDMO (data management objects) to achieve your purpose.

Please refer to the SQL Server books online, which gives detailed information about the available objects and functions.

Please feel free to post any further questions here so we may be able to hep you.

Best Regards,

David
