|Thanks guys!! |
The verification is only a quick way to double check that it ran at all. We have other program-specific tools to ensure that it ran correctly and contains all the pertinent data. We've been running it 3 years now, and the internal tools do just fine.
Every now and then, though, something happens to our network and the whole process (run via a series of batch files) goes kerfluey. Since this is all done in the background at night, we might not notice that it didn't complete correctly until a week or so later. This script is just to give us a quick note to say "all is well, no need to check further."
I appreciate all your great help!! many thanks to you.
