First of all, im a newbie so apologies in advance if this query sounds stupid.
I have created a BAT file which is supposed to automatically connect to a reporting software and output some data into an excel file. Rather than to always manually run this BAT file, I am then using windows XP scheduler to run this BAT file daily at a given time.
When i run the BAT file manually then it works fine - it connects to the software and outputs the data as i expect it to. However, when i try and run this bat file through windows schduler then unfortunately it doesnt work.
I get an 0x1 error under the last result column in the scheduled tasks window.
I checked the microsoft website to see what this means and i got the following description for this error: "0x1: An incorrect function was called or an unknown function was called".
Unfortunately, i'm still not sure why i am getting this message or what i can do to rectify this problem.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!! Many thanks for your time and help :)
