    I am trying to set up an automation process to have my queries on AS400 to
    run automatically on the date selected. I was told it can be done but no one
    in my area knows how.

    Well the first step is to link the tables in your AS/400 database to Access.
    You do this by creating a DSN (Data Source Name) in the ODBC Administrator
    in Control Panel (if you are using Windows 2000 or later then it is under
    Administrator Tools in Control Panel). To do this you qill need ODBC drivers
    for the AS/400 database (is it DB2?). Next you'll want to setup the Task
    Scheduler to automatically run Access on the schedule you want.

    "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office\msaccess.exe"
    "path_and_filename_of_your_mdb_or_mde"

    Next, in the Open event of your main form, run your SQL statements

    Private Sub Form_Open(Cancel As Integer)
    'Run your SQL - add as many statements as necessary
    CurrentDb.Execute "sql_statement_or_query_goes_here"
    ...
    'Now quit Access
    Application.Quit acQuitSaveNone
    End Sub

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
