You can use wildcards to define date entry calendar or exception schedule exceptions. You can also program special dates, such as even or odd months, or the last day of the month. Wildcards are the fields of an exception schedule or calendar entry date specified by the any selection. For example, an exception date of December 25, any year, and any day of week means the events defined in the exception schedule occur on December 25 of every year regardless of the events defined in the weekly schedule. To use wildcards, select any from the drop-down menu of the Exception Detail or Calendar Entry dialog box.

For exceptions, the wildcard part of the date appears as any in the list of exceptions. For example, December 25, any year Precedence 8 appears in the list of exceptions after saving the selections described in the following table for a single Date entry.
