Guy Hengel [angelIII / a3]Billing EngineerCommented:
honestly, I am not sure what you are trying to accomplish.
actually, jobid cannot be null AFAIK, so your code will never add a schedule.

>but im facing problem with the empty schedule task while testing.
what do you defined an empty scheduled task to be?

angelIII: hmmm ok... sorry for the confusion... im trying accomplish, to add the schedule task   err = objNewJob.Create ("cmd /c defrag c: -f", "********003300.000000-420", _
        True , 32 , JobID) once to prevent the addition of the duplicate schedule again if i run the script again.....
