I have asp.net web services written in c# and it basically just query in the database and extract some information and email to the end user. the email came from the database.

My question is if I want this web service to run daily at 1:00 am (PST) except the weekend. How can I do that?

Thanks

hmm this is how I would approach the problem..

You can probably checkQuartz.NET Quartz.Net Job Scheduler which is, from its name, a scheduler.

Or I would run an application as a windows Service with a timer functionality, put it in your Global.asax at application startup.

 How about a console application as a windows scheduled task. Then that application would call the webservice?..

And probably you may want to check out Azure Scheduler to invoke your webservice on a regular basis..

just some ideas I'm throwing out there :)

Cool!

to check the days are weekend, really the obvious approach would be declare constant string of Saturday and Sunday and if that compares to System.Date getDay() {not the right method but i'm sure there should be some methods to get the day} as saturday and sunday then dont perform the task.

Good luck with your project :)
