    Tried to auto run but password protected database


    I need to run a task on a password protected database nightly. However, when I try to use windows task scheduler I am prompted for a password before I can get to the autoexec to start. Any way I can get the task scheduler to enter this password?

    Should I have the task scheduler open say an excel file and put the vba in there to open the database and enter a password?

    Any ideas?

    You could try a VBScript and run the VBScript in the TaskScheduler.
    How to attach file: To provide db: copy, remove confidential data, run compact & repair, zip w/Windows Compression.
