Hello all, I would like to be able to download, on a daily basis, two files from a particular site and be able to do this without actually having to go to the site and click on the links to make the download. The files are in the same place daily, and have the same name each day. Task scheduler would enable me to run Internet Explorer at the same time, but does someone out there, in this vast and expanding knowledge base, know how to automate the rest of the process? Many thanks J
thanks to all of those who pointed me in the right direction regarding the downloads. After quite a bit of testing and messing about, I think I've cracked it. If anyone is looking to download files on a regular basis, this could well be for you. One confusing thing is that it only seems to have a 12 hour clock but still takes the time from the windows clock - I don't know how it knows it's am or pm! Still testing, but looking good. Thanks again J
Although it only seems to allow you to set using 12 hour clock (no am / pm indicator) you can check if it is 7 am or 7 pm when you set it because the scheduled time appears on the line on 24 hour clock.
Yes Jester, noticed that yesterday. Right click the task and go properties and the time is displayed there. Move the time on 12 hours in the scheduler and it moves to am or pm in the properties. Still think it's very good though and seems to doing the job fine at the moment. j
