    What Navision version are you using? There was a version where you had to set the date last run field before running it the first time.

    Can you provide some more information on what you have tried and what (error) messages you get?

    ok,
    I have gone in SETUP IT - JOB SCHEDULER - JOB SCHEDULER OVERVIEW and i inserted only one job. i've called it "PROVA" and then i filled in these information:
    GENERAL
    ID= PROVA
    DESCRIPTION= PROVA JOB SCHEDULER
    ENABLED = yes
    unit of measure = minute
    time between check = 10

    OBJECT SETUP
    OBJECT TYPE = Report
    OBJECT NUMBER = 7319
    OBJECT NAME = warehouse bin list

    SHEDULING DETAILS
    ERROR HANDLING = mark as error and retry
    Valid on..= all Yes
    STARTING TIME= 15.00.00
    ENDING TIME= 23.00.00

    Then, when i have selected Nav said me that "job scheduler Mgt setup is not defined".

    that's all. have i made a mistake in the setup?

    Go to Administration => Application Setup => Job Scheduler => Management Setup


    There, you'll find a setup that you have to set/create...

    i found the problem! there is a bad translation from english to italian. what you call "management setup" in italian sounds as "Setup Biz talk Management" and i think that it's not the same thing!

    Now i succed in using job scheduler but i have another question. When job scheduler works and runs a report, it ask me where i want to put the file but considering that when job sheduler might work in the enterprise there is noboby, how may i tell it that it have to overwrite the same file? (sorry for my bad english)

    thx

    You'll have to go in code and add/change something like:
    myfile.QUERYREPLACE(FALSE);
