Hi Matthew, sorry, 'contradictory' was the wrong word. Using today's date, Tue 23rd August (2022): 1 1 23 7 2 - applies in 2022 (the 2 looks redundant but it documents the requirement) 1 1 23 7 tue - applies in 2022 (the tue looks redundant but it documents the requirement) 1 1 23 7 wed - all fields are valid values, but the command would not run in 2022 1 1 23 7 * - applies in any year 1 1 * 7 tue - applies in any year, and includes 23 Aug as one of the 5 Tuesdays in August 2022 Is that now clearer? I've added it to our Clarifications page.
