Hi,

Has anyone successfully scheduled a .bat file to run as a step within an SQL Server Agent Job? The .bat file runs fine and does what it's supposed to do when run manually, but when run through the Job it states: The system cannot find the file specified.

Thanks

I'm just guessing here, but did you refer to the file with the full url and not just a letter drive?
instead of C:Folder\file.bat, use \\LocationName\folder\file.bat
