    Default Script Timing

    I have had some great help in the past from Stan, Tom and many otherson scripts and automating. I have a script that I want to run from a form every hour of the day but only run it one time every hour. I have in the past set the timer on the form properties to 60 seconds and hour =5 and it ran each day. Do i set the interval for 3600 seconds to execute it each hour or is there another way?

    Thanks Stan!

    Would you recomend that I make it something like 3602 just to be safe?

    I really want you to know how much I value the help and insite that you have given me. It has really helped.

    Glad to help any time.

    I can't think of any reason to use anything other than 3600. Using 3602 would mean that eventually an hour would be skipped. This is not the presisely the same question as picking an hour of the day and finding out if the current time was/is within that hour with an ontimer event.

    Essentially you want to run a script and then run it again 3600 seconds later.
