Programming of Rain Bird ESP controller

I have a Rain Bird ESP controller and I am trying to set up a program that will run Valves 1-4 and 7 on a Mon-Wed-Fri schedule and valves 5,6,8,9 on a Mon and Thursday schedule. Can I do that on one program or do I need to have more than one program? I want both to run automatically without me having to switch programs manually. There is probably an easy way to do it, but I can't find a way on you tube or reading the controller manual. Any help is appreciated!

Just program the A for Mon Wed Fri and the B for Mon and Thurs.
Both programs will run. There is no switching back in forth manually.
Make sure they both have a start time, run times and days of the week.

I tried that and it didn't work. I suspect it was because I didn't do what you are reminding me of! Thanks. I will give that a try.
