This was sorta what I'd been doing, but then I need to remember to go back in and edit/restore the entries back for the following year. The hope was for a one-touch-per-event solution. > Also, $T is the trigger date which will always be April 14. > You probably want to use today(), and I think you have the 0, 7 > reversed... should be 7, 0. Ah, that today() thing was a big part of the issue. With that advice, the solution I finally came up with that works adequately for me is REM Apr 4 ++[iif($Uy>2018,7,0)] MSG %"Mom's birthday%"% %b% REM Jun 14 ++[iif($Uy>2017,7,0)] MSG %"Dad's birthday%"% %b% All I need to do is increment the year in which I most recently sent the card (vim makes it easy to increment a number with ctrl+a) and save/quit. So with the above, come June 7th, I'll start getting reminders to send a birthday card to Dad. Once I do, I update to the current year as my way of marking it as done, and then I don't get any more nags, but it still reminds me on the day-of as well so I can call, and it also automatically starts nagging me next year without any restorative action on my part. Thanks for pointing me in the right direction, -tim _______________________________________________ Remind-fans mailing list Remindfirstname.lastname@example.org http://lists.roaringpenguin.com/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/remind-fans Remind is at http://www.roaringpenguin.com/products/remind
