I need to have an automated routine which looks in a MySQL table for any missing records by date field. The table should have multiple records from every single day, but something is causing some days to not get any records inserted at all. I need to be notified of these missing dates so I can investigate. Id rather do this in VB so I could set up a Windows scheduled task to run it once every 24 hours, but if need be I could do it in php and put it on our web server under a cron job. I'd highly prefer the VB route though.
