Thanks for the quick reply. You were on the right track but, ...later.
First two bits of info. 1 - Unfortunately there is no continual correlation between the Jewish calendar and the Common calendar. A given Jewish hoilday will rarely fall on the same date on the Common calendar in successive years, ie, a holiday which falls on September 16, 2008 fall on september 2,28,17, etc on successive years. 2 - In early 1990 and in order to cope with number 1, the developers of CC developed a plug-in .bcc file which could be imported into CC which set the dates for almost 80 Jewish events. That plug-in was Holiday (Jewish Holidays 2) and went through the 1990s. In 2000 they came out with another one which was Holiday (Jewish Holidays 3) and went through 2008. I was hoping that someone was aware of a #4 which would go beyond 2008 as #3 did for the beginning of 2000.
Now back to the "but", your solution to the problem was fine except it did not account for #1 above. I did discover a work around, but taking each of the 80 ievents one at a time is really time consuming. The work around goes as follows. Do as you suggested but the last item in the repeat screen is to choose "Hebrew Birth" in the Repeat Rule pull down menu in the lower right corner of the repeat window. This additional step seems to account for the variations between the Jerish and Common calendars.
The Jewish Holidays.bcc file that is included with all versions of Calendar Creator 12 (and which includes both Calendar Creator Platinum and Calendar Creator Ultimate Organizer) does go beyond 2008 - with the events extending to either 2010, 2011 or 2025. However, that file contains only 24 events. And, in 2 years you would be right back where you started, with the Repeat Until date expiring for most of those events.
Since you mentioned that you are currently working with 80 Jewish Holiday events, it seems to me that it might work a whole lot easier for you if you were to create a single calendar project which contains ONLY the Jewish Holidays you want to use, then set whatever Repeat Until or other Repeat Rule best suits each of those Holidays. Then, save that calendar project as your own personal Jewish Holidays.bcc file to import into all future calendars.
