This article is useful and simply written. Assume your searching on Date Fields..
Using one of the templates or a simple database for practice can help avoid frustration.
There are questions and answers at the bottom...
Some of the examples here I did not know...

Like everything, of course, 'it's easy when you know how'. I read the article and found it perfectly simple, and I'm a Total Die-Hard English Pedant. But I've been using Filemaker for over 20 years. It helps others to help you if we can know which part of the page failed for you, or why. If others find it straightforward they often struggle to remember what it was like in The Bad Old Days when they got frustrated too.
What syntax error do you get? Can you post a screen shot? What script are you using? Can you post a screen shot? What step of the walk-through you posted do you stumble at?
The knowledge base article uses an example script step with incorrect syntax for recent versions of FileMaker. It may have worked in fileMaker 6, but not since the release of fileMaker 7 and we started having to identify both the table and the field in expressions.
Set Field [aDate;Start Date & "..." & End Date]
Set Field [YourTable::aDate ; YourTable::Start Date & "..." & YourTable::End Date]
If that doesn't resolve the issue, please indicate the precise error message you are getting and what part of the expression, if any is highlighted when you get it.
Thank You it works now!
