I have a calculation for a field. This calculation is used to 'construct' a bibliography (Maybe a merge field could be used; but I haven't figured that out).

 

If there numkbers in the field, mostly years, but some times page number, the result is not the bibliography entry but a large made up of year numbers etc.

 

If statement:

TextStyleAdd (B_author_biblio; Vet) & " (" & B_year & "). " & If (B_publisher  ≠ ""; TextStyleAdd (B_title; Cursief) & ". " & B_publisher & "."; If (B_in_title ≠ ""; B_title & ". In: " & TextStyleAdd (B_in_title; Cursief) & ", " & B_in_volume; " <== nog aanpassen" ))

 

Result as it should be (please note that one of the years is replaced by 'xxxx'.

Wagenaar, F.J. (ed) (1957). Rondebosch Down the Years, 1657 – xxxx. Rondebosch.

 

This the result when the intended year of 1957 is used (instead of xxxx):

,195716572

I.E.: year of publication than the first year of the period and than a 2
