  I have a set backup schedule that consitst of Monday - Thursday and a "Weekly backup on weekends. I need to cancel a "Thurdsay" daily job so my weekley will start on schedule over the long weekend. In the past if I forget to change a tape or something and the job is in qued up I can just rt click and hit cancel. I don't have that option, because that job is not qued up. I only need to cancell it one time and not mess up the automatic rotation.
