Re: "How to" Missing and unknown dates

Entirely agree, dates held as such in the database should be, er, dates.  Of course.  However, the software evaluates the user data entered into the date field and decides what to do.  It takes various actions if it sees "c", or "?", or "approx", and so on.  If it doesn't like what it sees it pops quotes around it.  My suggestion is simply that FH does something new and useful if the user enters "nd" into a date field, in addition to all the other very useful things it does with "c", or "?", or "approx", or "cal", and so on.
