Rather than writing a Windows service, which is running all the time, just to execute a task on a schedule, why not write a simple console application to execute the task, and use the built-in Windows Task Scheduler to schedule it to run at the desired time?

Apart from anything else, that will let you change the schedule at any point without having to recompile your code.

That's a nice one
but don't wanna create separate app for it instead of that need to use the service for both scheduler and interop
any suggestion regarding that
Thank you

note: i have used interop for word document generation

Then you need to read this:
Considerations for server-side Automation of Office[^]
Microsoft does not currently recommend, and does not support, Automation of Microsoft Office applications from any unattended, non-interactive client application or component (including ASP, ASP.NET, DCOM, and NT Services), because Office may exhibit unstable behavior and/or deadlock when Office is run in this environment.
