You can write a DCL procedure, that does the job once and then use a CRON package to do the periodic resubmit. You find one e.g. here:

> [...] (such as ,once a month) [...]

When, exactly?

if f$integer( f$cvtime( f$time(), , "day")) .eq. 1
then it's the first day of the month.

Many things are possible.

Re: How to periodical zip and copy files

Hello and Welcome to the Forums.

First, you must realize how and when to use a search engine such as Google and how to use the available product documentation for OpenVMS; how to find and answer your own questions. Once you have grasped the mechanisms and terms and concepts there (and knowing the tools and terms and concepts can greatly speed your web searches, too), then you can proceed apace to tasks such as zip and periodic batch job submission.
