AD7689 Analog input question

Hi all,


I'm slightly confused by reading the AD7689 datasheet.  On p. 4 of the datasheet, the absolute input voltage of the analog inputs is listed as Vref + 0.1.  On p.9 the absolute maximum analog input voltage is shown as VDD + 0.3V. 


My question is that if I am using the internal reference at 2.5V, and VDD is set to 5V, then which absolute maximum is correct?  Can I apply a 4V input to the analog inputs of the ADC and not harm the device?
