Reason: A third party wrote a program for us in JAVA and this is scheduled to run every 10 minutes. Unfortunately the process takes resources whether there are records in the database to process or not. The JAVA runset is run from a batch file that it a scheduled task. If I could get either my ASP.NET program to start the batch file/scheduled task ad-hoc that would save time and resources

So I create a SQL job that runs a batch file. I then create a trigger that runs the SQL job?
