I like the ability in MS SQL to create Scheduled Jobs within SQL Server Agent to run stored procedures etc in my SQL Database.  What I am looking at setting up is to allow a user within MS Access to actually create a Schedule Job Specification from scratch without having to log into MS SQL Server studio.

Is this possible?  I have searched on google and haven't come across anything yet.

If this isn't possible, can anyone suggest a workaround within MS Access which would enable a user to create a scheduled job for a given time (say run every Monday or Every 2 weeks on a Wednesday) and then link that with a SP to run at that time and create a specific record in my database when it runs?

Help gratefully appreciated,
