Why do it through a scheduled task when you can do it directy in the webpage?

Just add: <meta http-equiv="refresh" content="0" />

and change the ="0" to the amount of seconds you wish to refresh the webpage.

Please the meta tag between your <head> and </head> tags.

Maybe I can rephrase this.

I have an excel spreadsheet that will autopublish to an html page everytime it is saved. I need to either schedule a task or have a script to refresh that page on a separate monitor.

Easy as you can instruction wise.
Thank you
