  • Is it possible for a database to generate an email when the system date reaches a particular date?

  • For a database to "automatically" do something at a certain date, it has to be running all the time. Otherwise, you could just have code at startup to check the date and then react accordingly. But if you can have the application running 24/7, then you can use a Timer event.

    A better option might to use the Windows Task Scheduler to execute the Access application at a certain date/time.

    Hope that helps...
