Hi emel

It could be useful to run a SP on specified interval but.maybe that result
you expect can be achieved in different way!

What are you try to do running SP or trigger on every hour?

Misunderstanding !

If you can create a database trigger for periodically execute you don't
need manage the OS of server (for sheduler and isql start)! only your

Sufficient a database trigger then fired every minute (until database in
work, anybody connected).
Everybody can write our favourite sheduler for this ;)
