what am I doing wrong? no other crontabs exist pointing to this file
I really don't see anything wrong with what you have but maybe try this?
00 06 * * * cd /path/to/file
Not sure if the missing 0's make a difference. The crontab definition doesn't mention needing 2 digits for those fields but I have see crontabs using 2 verses 1 digit.
