making a cronjob on redhat 8


I am trying to make a cronjob on redhat 8, but when I get into the editor I am able to insert my line, but when I go to save and quit nothing happens.
I have tried pressing esc to get back to command mode and then 'w' to save, but that doesn't seem to work and 'q' doesn't quit. Has anyone had this problem? Maybe the commands for vi on redhat are different.

Thank you very much,
