Backup Exec 2012 - One job, multiple tapes

I'm looking to create one job, and then for each day it runs, to have a different media set (different tape)

Previously I had 5 jobs for each server, and each job was associated with a media set, which was in turn associated with a different tape

So we would have:

Monday Backup > Monday Media Set > Monday Tape
Tuesday Backup > Tuesday Media Set > Tuesday tape

I've re-installed everything - so starting from scratch, and wondering if I can have one backup job that selects a specific tape / media set based on the day it runs. is this possible?

(As a note, we are using a HP autoloader, so all 5 tapes are loaded at the same time)

I believe the link below from Symantec is what you are looking for. Basically, it comes from setting up the overwrite periods on the jobs. Therefore, the system is forced to select the appropriate tape.
