I hope some one can help me. I have been fighting with this for a week. I am trying to run a batch file which in turn starts a macro in access 97 to output a fairly complex report to html. The batch file works when I manually run it from win explorer. The problem occurs when I try to load an ASP with this code:<BR><BR>Set Obj = Server.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")<BR>commandlin e="c:yyyatchfile.bat"<BR>Obj.Run commandline<BR><BR>The server always times out trying to load the page. I have some html before and after the script so I could try to see where it was getting hung up, but it does not even load the html on the page.<BR>I thought this was the proper way to run a .bat or .exe, but it is not working for me. Help me?! Please?!!??<BR>Thaks in advance
