Hi there all experts,
                            I have a vb.net application with MS-Access as the back end. There are some queries I would like to run using the windows task scheduler if it's possible. Thanks for the help in advance.

Create VB.NET application that will run query and call this application from the scheduler

To run query

        Dim oAccess As Object
        Dim sDB As String = "c:\testdb\db.mdb"
        Dim sQuery As String = "Myqry"

        oAccess = CreateObject("Access.Application")

        ' Open the database
        oAccess.OpenCurrentDatabase(sDB)
        oAccess.DoCmd.OpenQuery(sQuery)
        oAccess.DoCmd.Maximize()
        oAccess.Visible = True
        oAccess = Nothing
