'Scheduled tasks' will simply run the code, whichever you choose, at
designated intervals. I posted some code on the list, about a month or so
ago, which showed how one can include code in a .bat file to test file
dates and sizes. By using the same approach in running the task as a .bat
file, you can set up a loop to continue the process until the file is
