JobSchedule.ActiveStartDate Property


Gets or sets the date and time when the schedule starts.

Namespace:   Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Smo.Agent
Assembly:  Microsoft.SqlServer.Smo (in Microsoft.SqlServer.Smo.dll)

public DateTime ActiveStartDate { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.DateTime

A DateTime value that specifies the date and time when the job schedule starts.

Scheduled SQL Server Agent jobs can have start and end dates. A job is run only between the start date and time and the end date and time. Alter the ActiveStartDate property to set the date when the schedule goes into effect.

If the ActiveStartDate property has not been set, the DateTime.MinValue is returned, which is Jan 1, 1999.

The scheduled start date depends on when the schedule is assigned to the job. For example, you create a schedule that runs every other Monday at 8:00 A.M. If you create a job at 10:00 A.M. on Monday, March 3, 2008, the schedule start date is Monday, March 17, 2008. If you create another job on Tuesday, March 4, 2008, the schedule start date is Monday, March 10, 2008.
