    Hi all -
    I have several 10mg+ spreadsheets that I need to update daily, which I have macros set up to import in new information from specific data files.

    These should run starting at say 5am from my desktop pc - which is a sort of "mini server" for my department with its own identity. The data files that are used come from a about 13 different PC5250 emulation instances. I set scheduler up to run the tasks and from my log it shows they do start up and run, however, they keep timing out after an hour (which is the time frame I gave it) with no error messages. The tasks seem pretty straight forward, the mini-server is awake 24/7 (locked), and the tasks indicate the proper user ID from which to run the DTF files. So, I am kind of at a loss as to why I am not getting my data.

    :confused: Can anyone help me figure this out??:confused:

    Thanks so much.

    What are the tasks as far as you have them set up in the scheduler? If it is just opening a spreadsheet could it have to do with the macro warning when Excel starts?

    The tasks in this case are to open an ISeries Data Transfer file that does require a user name and password to be entered. However, if there is an open instance of that same username/password combo active it is not required.
