          "inform"?

          I think you want to pop up a custom dialog, enter two dates and find all invoices where the sales date is within the specified date range.

          If so:

          Loop
             Show custom Dialog ["Enter a date range"] //specify two input fields, use date fields and specify global storage for both.
             If [ get ( LastMessageChoice ) = 2 // Cancel was clicked ]
                Exit script
             Else IF [ Not ( IsValid (YourTable::gDate1 ) And Isvalid ( YourTable::gDate2 ) ) //make sure valid dates were entered]
                Show Custom Dialog ["error: invalid date range"]
             Else
                 Exit Loop If [True  // valid dates were entered]
             End IF
          End Loop
          Enter Find Mode [] //clear the pause check box
          Set Field [YourTable::DateField ; YourTable::gdate1 & "..." & YourTable::gDate2]
          Set Error capture [on] //keeps dialog box from interrupting script if no records are found
          Perform Find []

          Note: you must specify global storage for the two date fields: gDate1 and gDate2 in order for this script to work.
