I'm looking at a job posting, and they're doing "weekly snapshot reports" Sounds to me like a canned report with a fixed date range (a week). It's for some sort of training / training enrollment for technicians (as far as I can tell... it's for a BIG tire company.)

Am I reading that right? (And yes, the whole job description is pretty vague!)

It could be what you're describing, but it could also be that, every week, they're going to want you to create new reports that track some specific aspect of the work.

I think the only way you'd be able to find out is to talk to them!

thanks, Doug. I'm working on that part. I have tons of questions - probably too many.

The whole job description has been a bit of a riddle... no wonder companies hire the wrong people - they can't write a job description that anybody outside the organization can understand.

Maybe I've been living in SQL Server land for too long... How do I automate the sending of the report is Access isn't open? I Know I can create a form, leave it hidden and use the OnTimer event.. but can I create a macro or whatever so that the database opens at a specific time every day, so the macros can run? (That's why I was wondering why they didn't use SQL Server, but if they're a SAP environment, they probably use Oracle...)

You use a macro set off by Windows Scheduler.

Oh, okay, thanks! I guess I can figure it out later... might help to have done one before said interview, should it ever happen!
