    Logical Backup Scheduling by using dbms_scheduler

    i am trying to schedule an hourly based logical backup

    1-i have created a batch file which contains

    exp system/gateway@orcl dumpfile=expdir:try.dmp logfile=expdir:try.dmp schemas=test

    this batch file is running successfully

    2-i am trying to create the following job to run every hour
    BEGIN
    DBMS_SCHEDULER.create_job (
    JOB_NAME => 'BACKUP_JOB',
    JOB_TYPE => 'EXECUTABLE',
    JOB_ACTION => 'c:\backup.bat',
    START_DATE => trunc(SYSDATE+1/24,'HH'),
    REPEAT_INTERVAL => 'FREQ=HOURLY;INTERVAL=1',
    COMMENTS => 'Logical backup');
    END;

    My first question is whether it supports .bat executables
    If it does then can anybody help me in this regard?
    thanx in advance

    There are three kinds of lies: Lies, damned lies, and benchmarks...

    Unix is user friendly. It's just very particular about who it's friends are.
