    Batch job

    Is there anyway I can have the OS run a batch job in the background 4 or 5 times a day? I want to be able to Copy files from G:jobstask.mdb to Jldjobstask.mdb in a batch every 4 hours.

    Create a batch file in Notepad along the lines:
    Copy G:jobstask.mdb Jldjobstask.mdb
    and save it as (eg)
    c:schedcopy.bat
    Test it by RUNning c:schedcopy.bat

    Control panel | Scheduled tasks - this wizard should help set it up as you require
