Anaplan Connect Batch File - Windows Task Scheduler

Hi team,

 

I have Anaplan Connect batch file which runs an Export process that runs perfectly when executed manually (double clicking on the Batch file) but when I run the Batch file through Windows Task Scheduler I receive the below error

 

Any ideas?

 

Thanks

Seems like windows scheduler cant locate your batch script . Try one of the following 

 

  1. Give the full path for the script so something like "C:\User\Script Folder\Script.bat" or 
  2. Specify "Start in" location (this is where script is located C:\User\Script Folder)  and in program Script specify script name ( Script.bat) when scheduling task in windows task scheduler .

Thanks for the reply @karank 

 

I've put the below in the boxes but it is now not even running in Scheduler 

 

Program/Script: "Q:\02 Financial\1. FPANDA\anaplan-connect-1.4.2\anaplan-connect\Whispir Actuals - Process Export.bat"

Start in (Optional) "Q:\02 Financial\1. FPANDA\anaplan-connect-1.4.2\"

 

Any other ideas?

 

Thanks

Re: Anaplan Connect Batch File - Windows Task Scheduler

it is EITHER OR not both options at the same time 

 

so if you are going option 1 don't do option 2 and vice versa

It is not EITHER OR

 

The 'Program/Script' box is mandatory which is what I already had

 

I added the 'Start in (Optional)' box but then it stopped working altogether

The issue was the directory in the 'Start In (Optional)' box does not have " " around the location

 

Once I removed the " " it worked fine

Its Either OR based on my response  I mean ( i provided 2 options ) 

 

you don't need start in location if you are specifying full path (this was option 1)

 

If you are specifying start in position then you must specify script name ( this was option 2)

Thanks @karank 

 

So the issue was that I needed to have both the Full Path & the Start In location (I think this is because you need to run Anaplan Connect where the API is saved)

 

But the start in location is entered without the " " which is confusing (most directory entries in all programs are entered using " ")
