task schedule to run MS Access


I

I created a task schedule to run my application to run the report over
night. It only works when I lock the computer. Is it possible to have
the task run while I am log out like other application?

Your information is great appreciated,

Access has a UI and you can only run applications not logged in if
there is no UI.

So, in short, no, there is no way to do what you want to do using
Access without running it in a logged-in session (locked or not).

Thanks for the information,
Can you please let me know what UI is and are there any work around
like using batch file or other tools?

thanks again,

UI - User Interface

As David mentioned, there is no workaround. You can't do anything (in
practicality) without being logged in.

UI = User Interface.

There is no way to automate Access to print a report without a
logon.

There might be other ways to get data out of your database into a
report layout that can be done without being logged on (e.g., via a
vbScript), but they won't involved your Access report layouts.
