Hi everyone, im a comparative newbie to NAVISION and we are currently running 3.70.

My question is, is there an easy way to launch a sqlserver DTS job from within navision or launch a *.bat file?

Any suggestions gratefully accepted!

    Hello. You have to connect through ado and execute the following command
    MaintenancePlan is a job.

    EXEC msdb..sp_start_job 'MaintenancePlan'

    Here is an example on how to use ADO.

    I've never used SHELL in Navision, but if the code will run on the server, then you should be able to use SHELL to call DTSRun - a command line exe that runs DTS packages. If you will be running the code from a client other than the SQL Server, then you'll need to use ADO.
