Post Cron Job is not running


Hi,

I have 3 cronjobs set up on my Unix server . Out of which 2 cron jobs run the same script but at different times and the other one runs another script.
So in the 2 jobs which are set to run PMDaily.sh for eg , One runs on Sunday at 8AM and the other runs monday to friday at 6 AM . How ever the Sunday cronjob works (runs through the crontab) but the Cron job set for Monday to Friday is not working. However manually if i run this script it workd perfectly.

Please let me know what could be the possible reasons for this? This is very urgent. Thanks a lot in advance

Are these the same scripts ?
Make sure you use the whole PATH to all the commands in the scripts, since cron has a limited PATH
Any pointers in the logs or mails sent by cron?
