Full and Part Dates
I have a portal that keeps a basic timeline. It has two fields, "Date" and "Details'.
Unfortunately, because of the type of data I need to keep some dates are not complete. Example, one entry may have a full date of: 5/1/1888. Another entry may one be a part date: 5/1888; being for May 1888.
I have changed the field to a text field so the data can be entered. However, it can not be sorted as a dates.
Is there any method of being able to extract a date out of text can convert to a number of formats. Or a solution for part dates to be sorted along with full dates...?
