Hi John, I would add 'bills' to your list of monthly events. Pretty much any revolving charge card has a fixed billing date (e.g. 8th of the month).  Likewise for loan repayments; home mortgage, car note, boat note, apartment and other rents, etc. Because of that, I would suggest instead, that more people are familiar with having a car note due on the xth of the month than having a 'standing meeting' on the 2nd Tuesday of the month. Now, understandably, we've got a lot of 'IT' folks here and they have more familiarity with all kinds of odd schedules: * Kicking off payroll runs on the 1st and 15th. * Scheduling the weekly backups for 3am every Sunday. * Scheduling the daily extracts for midnight, uh, daily I suppose. ;-P * Scheduling the 'Accounting close' processes to run on the 3rd weekday of every month. (Which is different than the 3rd of the month. Next month, for example, the 3rd workday is the 5th of June.) * Scheduling the various 'billing cycle' runs to get those utility company bills in the mail. * Etc. The real fun, (in some people's twisted imagination anyway), comes in when you start playing with scheduling against a 'shop calendar'! (That's where you run into the wonderful joy of saying counter-intuitive things like "Oh yeah, the last week of April starts on the 8th of May this year!") Personally, I don't see any big need to create names for these different kinds of schedules. HTH, RonL.  I used to know a guy, (an internal auditor), that used to carry 24 Visa credit cards in his wallet. Every single one of them with a different billing date. When he made a purchase he would choose the appropriate card and get an extra couple of weeks of 'float' on his money. Seems excessive to me, but it does show that you can 'game' the system.
