invisible scheduled jobs

Expert 100+

I've got some Access jobs that are initiated by Windows Scheduler. Sometimes the scheduled job is visible on the screen and sometimes not. All jobs are forms that execute some processes automatically when launched by the scheduler.

The visible forms all run under Windows server 2003 and Access 2003. The invisible one is running on Win 7 and Access 2007. Is that the difference? Is there some way I can make the job run in a visible manner?

The scheudler for the invisible job and one of the visible ones is simply launching an .mdb with Access options set to open the target form automatically. So one can effect the same thing as the scheduler by simply opening the .mdb file. In that case the form is visible.

Thanks for any suggestions.

I think it has to do with the Security Options. To have it display, I think you have to have it run when the user is Logged On Only. Also, if you don't use a user account (use a system account like Local Service) it wont display; well it will only show the UI to the user that is specified and if that user isn't logged in, it wont display. I'm really rusty with Task Scheduler and Services, so hopfully I've helped.

Thanks very much. I'll study the details about the security options for task scheduler.
