Hi,

I created a batch file that runs a command line blat email out script, also attaches files located on a network drive to the email. It works fine when run from my local pc: the email gets sent, the files are attached. All is ok.

However, when I call the batch file as a scheduled task the script runs, the email is delivered, but the files are not attached.

Any suggestions on what I might be doing wrong or have failed to do pls?

Thanks, in anticipation.

If you are using a mapped drive letter for the network share, that drive letter is not visible when you run the program in the Arcana Scheduler. You should use the UNC path to the file instead of the drive letter. Or else you can map a drive letter on the "Network" page of the job properties, but there can be problems with this approach. See the online help and this KB article for more information.

Thanks JD! Modifying my path to UNC did the trick.

Cheers,
