Automating DBCC checks

I need to run DBCC checks on my databases every week, but I was advised not to use the database wizards in MS SQL 6.5. Can DBCCs be setup to run automatically?

SQL Server comes with quite a decent scheduler in the SQL Executive. You can use it to schedule your DBCC statements to run whenever it is appropriate in your environment. Make sure that you set up the job in the Executive as a command batch. You will have to specify the command using isql. However, this will allow you to specify an output file and therefore save the results of your DBCC. If you choose the "SQL statement" option, it will execute at the appropriate time but it will not save the result.
