looking at the advance format listed in the help section of the repeat field, it list the ability to repeat the 2nd monday of the month, but when I move to the next record.. the 2nd monday of the month is changed to monthly.

so for this to work, must i created the first task with a start and due date of the second monday?

You have to specify "The 2nd Monday".
It won't work if you put "2nd Monday".
(A bit silly, right?)

You don't need to input a Start Date or a Due Date but the Repeat won't be triggered until you complete the task.

Also, the input box for "Advance options" is awkward to use. If you move your mouse slightly outside the box, it disappears.

I tried that.... with and without quotes (just in case it mattered).... it changed 2nd Monday to Every Mon, once I left the repeat field.

Did you use the word "the"? That's the key difference.
(Don't use quotation marks.)
