what is the cause of unsucessful execution?

Does reading a qvd or excel file cause the problem?!?

My Job which is written in vb script is fine, i am able to handle successful and failure both cases. and failure cause did not matter. my concern is just that i want to run a particular job for for multiple times ( 4-5 times) after 2-3 minutes of interval, how schedule that

You have an option to pass parameters for 'Number of times' & 'Timeout'.

I don't know the details, but you could do the following:

- create a "second qvw"

- after unsucessful reload of main.qvw load the  "second qvw"

- the second qvw uses a counter saved in a separate qvd,  you could also work with sleep command for delaying

- on sucessful reload of "second qvw" , main.qvw will be triggered ...

------------------------------

If the limit is reached , for example 15 times, then force the "second qvw" to end in an error

--> you could call just a function that doesn't exist --> Call 'Dummy';

-----------------------------

don't forget to reset the counter once a day...
