i have windows 7
go to Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Task Scheduler

Click 'Create Task'

Tabs are General, Triggers, Actions, Conditions, Settings

Action to open URL -
"C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\IEXPLORE.EXE"[and then page you want to open]

Triggers is time of day, daily, weekly, etc.

The page opened has a recordset that GETS record of any customer expiring in 5 days.
UE trigger is 'recordset not empty'
If there is a customer expiring in 5 days, UE sends the notice of expiration to the customer/customers and then redirects to a page that lists the customers that were sent the email.
the URL remains open on my PC until i close it.

I have it run daily at 10:30pm
