i'm running a sheduled job in sql server which SELECTs few columns in a table. this table gets updated very frequently . when column A reaches at a certain threshold value of column B , the job updates some other table/s. <BR><BR>now at this instance i also want to notify the client exes . the inherent notifications ( pager/email/nt log ) will not help because i need to flash on a client vb exe's screen ! say a red line saying *blah blah happened* . <BR><BR>how to achieve this ? <BR>i don't want clients conutinuously requesting some data on the server ( unless that's only option but i do THINK there could be better options ) <BR>please help . thanks .
