I'm running FileMaker Server 7 Advanced on a Windows 2003 server machine.

I have a vbscript which extracts user names from the FM server via ODBC and emails them to a specific address.

When I manualy run the script in the server it works correctly, Howewer it does not work, when it is started as a scheduled script from fileMaker server.

I got the following message in the FM event viewer:

Event ID 154

Schedule "A" aborted; ":" could not be found.

Does anyone know, what should be the problem?

PS: here is the script I have:

set msg = WScript.CreateObject("CDO.Message")

msg.From = "[email protected]"

msg.To = "[email protected]"

msg.Subject = "Birthday - " & DATE()

msg.TextBody = "List of people who have birthday today." vbCrLf

Set Conn = CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")

' Build the connection string

ConnectionString = "DSN=Personal;UID=x;PWD=x"

' Open connection

Conn.Open ConnectionString

sqstring = "select bDate, fullname From Personal where GSID <> 'a'"

Set RS = Conn.Execute(sqstring)

Do While Not (Rs.BOF Or Rs.EOF)

szuldat =Rs.Fields("BDate" )

if left (DATE(),5)= left (szuldat, 5) then

'MSGBOX Rs.Fields("BDate" )

msg.TextBody= msg.TextBody & Rs.Fields("fullname" ) & ", " & vbCrLf

end if



msg.Configuration.Fields("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/smtpserver") = ""

msg.Configuration.Fields("http://schemas.microsoft.com/cdo/configuration/sendusing") = 2
