Hi Jim,

What calendar app are you using? Google Calendar?

I’ll bet if you look closely at the dates and times you’ve set, you’ll see something wrong. For example, somehow the start time has a date with 2022 and the end time has a date with year = 2023. OR, you’ve set the repeat to Every Day, instead of once a month. 

You’re right, if I could see your screenshot, it would help a lot. If you have the screenshot in Google Photos – you can just send me a link: open the photo, click the share button, create link and copy – then paste the link here. To actually include the screenshot in a message here, the image needs to be on your computer, then you click the Upload Attachments button below the message, click Add Files and find the photo on your hard drive then click start.


You can send me the photo by email –
