need to launch an .asp page automatically

P: n/a
Hello

I would like to run an ASP page each day at the same time automatically.
it reads from my product data and ftps the data to another server.

I am running on a windows system with IIS
I have no idea where to begin.
Is there anything else I can do?
it is not my own server so I don't have access to server.
I can just ftp.

Thanks in advance.

I wanted to do something similar to this a few days ago and it appears we
can't, unless we get access to the server itself, or leave the page open in
a browser window (and have the page use a refresh tag)

> I would like to run an ASP page each day at the same time automatically.

Then why does it have to be ASP? ASP is designed to run on a web server, to
service requests from users running a browser, and return HTML.

Sounds like the technology you want is VBScript (run through Windows
Scripting Host and Windows Scheduler), or a C# or VB.Net app run through
Windows Scheduler. If you're doing work only in the database, and you are
using SQL Server, you can use a job with SQL Agent.

However, since you don't have access to the server, you're going to have to
use a kludge (if the code actually does have to live on the server; depends,
really, on what it is doing). Locally, set up a VBS script that hits the
ASP page (see http://www.aspfaq.com/2173 for syntax and usage of XMLHTTP,
which is not just for ASP), and then set up a scheduled task locally.

Maybe if you describe exactly what you are trying to accomplish, rather than
"I need to run some ASP code every day," you might get a better set of
options...

I agree this is the proper way to do that anyway. Doing that without server
access can only be a dubbed down solution.
