I am running windows xp sp 3.  when I run the command "schtasks /query" it returns any scheduled tasks but truncates the name to 36 chars.  can anyone tell me why?

I believe that is simply a limitation of characters.  You can try running it this way:

schtasks /query /fo LIST /v

/fo LIST = list format for easier reading.
/v = verbose

I was hoping to find a way around this, but I guess I'll live with it.  I pull it as a table because it's easier and faster to parse that way for my application.  Thanks for the answer.

You are aware of the CSV method (/FO CSV), aren't you? That one is usually best for parsing, and has no length limitations.
