I know this is an ASP forum but I was wondering if anyone knew how to pause code for a specified amount of time using VBScript in an Access 2000 database. Here is what is being done.<BR><BR>The code executes a batch file which FTP's in a text file from another server. VBA takes over and imports the file into the database then creates a RTF file.<BR><BR>The problem is VBA is executing the import and creation file before the batch file is finished FTPing the file over. <BR><BR>I know I could use prompts but I am trying to keep from doing anything with the database at all. I have a Scheduled Task setup to kick off the database.<BR><BR>Help Anyone?
