    C# .NET Best Practices...please help!

    I am in need of some guidance of how to carry out a specific task I need to perform...

    I have a database table that contains requests made by users for excel spreadsheets.

    In that table there is a status column which indicates the step the request is in.

    I need to write a service of some sort that will be able to keep checking the status column of that table.

    When it finds a record that contains the status it is looking for, it should pull the data from the record and call another application which creates the excel spreadsheet.

    (NOTE: I have written a program that contains a class which creates an excel spreadsheet and saves it to the local hard drive. All of this will be hosted on the same server)

    Thanks in advance!

    Hey tbarbedo,

    It sounds like you need a Windows Service. This is one of those things(amongst many others) that Visual Studio makes easier to achieve. Here's a link to get you started: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/libr...12(VS.80).aspx
