      Creating a scheduled task to open a file on FMServer 10

      Post

      I'm trying to create a FMServer10 scheduled task to open a file (TrackerExportMgr.fp7) at a specific time each night.  I haven't worked on the server side very often and I cannot find where to do this.

      The idea is that the TrackerExportMgr.fp7 database contains only one script to run at startup.  It contains no fields and no records.  The file would open each night via the FM Server scheduled task which would run the startup script.  The startup script runs a series of external export scripts in our main database.  Then, the final step of the script is to close the TrackerExportMgr.fp7 file so that the scheduled task (and associated scripts) runs nightly.

      I know scheduled task to open a FM file is probably something simple, but I cannot find where to do this in FM Server. I know it can be done because I was able to do this several months ago when I was testing the theory. Any help would be appreciated.

      Thanks!
