Not only possible but very simple. Just write the php as normal and use Windows' Scheduler to run it with something like: C:\php\php.exe C:\path\to\script.php I have several scripts like this scheduled to do basic maintenance work or carry out automated tasks. > Thanks, > Vinay -- Niel Archer niel.archer (at) blueyonder.co.uk -- PHP Database Mailing List (http://www.php.net/) To unsubscribe, visit: http://www.php.net/unsub.php
