For a range of dates, the start date and end date can be fully specified dates (all fields defined). If the start date is a fully specified date, then the end date can be a completely unspecified date (all fields wildcards [any]). If the start date is a completely unspecified date (all fields wildcards [any]), then the end date must be a fully specified date. The Day of Week must be set to match the day of the week for all specified dates. The following table shows some sample wildcard date ranges and their meanings.
