Just create a batch file, say myproc.bat with the line
C:/pathtoR/bin/R CMD BATCH myscript.R

and use the Windows task scheduler to schedule your job.
(Drag your batch file into C:/WINDOWS/Tasks, change its name if you
like, and right click to Properties to schedule it and set other

Subject: [R] set up automatic running of R

Hi useR,

I am trying to find how to schedule an automatic run of R periodically,
have written some scripts to extract data which are updated monthly on
another server, my os is xp. The goal is that my script will run at a
scheduled time every month and record the results to some directories.

Now the scripts are done, only thing I need is to know how to let R run
scripts at a certain time, say the first Sunday of each months.

Could anyone give me some clues?

Thanks a million in advance!
