At

The at command schedules commands and programs to run on a computer at a specified time and date. The Schedule service must be running to use the at command.

at [\\computername] [[id] [/delete [/yes]]

at [\\computername] time [/interactive] [/every:date[,...] | /next:date[,...]] "command"

Parameters

none

Used without paramaters, at lists scheduled commands.

\\computername

Specifies a remote computer. If this parameter is omitted, the commands are scheduled on the local computer.

id

Is an identification number assigned to a scheduled command.

/delete

Cancels a scheduled command. If id is omitted, all the scheduled commands on the computer are canceled.

/yes

Forces a yes answer to all queries from the system when deleting scheduled events.

time

Specifies the time when command is to run. Time is expressed as hours:minutes in 24-hour notation (00:00 [midnight] through 23:59).

/interactive

Allows the job to interact with the desktop of the user who is logged on at the time the job runs.

/every:date[,...]

Runs the command on every specified day(s) of the week or month (for example, every Thursday, or the third day of every month). Specify date as one or more days of the week (M,T,W,Th,F,S,Su) or one or more days of the month (using numbers 1 through 31). Separate multiple date entries with commas. If date is omitted, the current day of the month is assumed.

/next:date[,...]

Runs the specified command on the next occurrence of the day (for example, next Thursday). Specify date as one or more days of the week (M,T,W,Th,F,S,Su) or one or more days of the month (using numbers 1 through 31). Separate multiple date entries with commas. If date is omitted, the current day of the month is assumed.

"command"

Is the Windows NT command, program (.EXE or .COM file) or batch program (.BAT or .CMD file) to be run. When the command requires a path as an argument, use the absolute path, that is, the entire pathname beginning with the drive letter. If command is on a remote computer, specify the server and sharename, rather than a remote drive letter. You may use quotation marks around the command, whether you are using at at the command line or in a batch file. If the command includes switches that are used by both the command and at, you must enclose command in quotation marks. If the command is not an executable (.EXE) file, you must precede the command with cmd /c; for example cmd /c dir > c:\test.out.
