Title

range of dates

Post

Hi everybody,

 

I'm a beginner with FileMaker. I'm building an archaeological database and I'm in trouble with date fields. Sometimes archeological finds have exact year datings, sometimes not (e.g. IV-II century b.C.). What kind of field (date, numeric, string...) could I use to input dates into my records? I mean, I'd like it would be possible to search for II century b.C. records in my database and find II century but also III-I century b.C. records.
