Could be a typo or could be an error in how you scripted the find.
Please post a copy of your script. You can post a screen shot of the scripts workspace if you use the picture button in the tool bar of this reply box.
You can paste the script as text if you copy it from a PDF, Database Design Report (FileMaker Advanced) or via a plug in that makes this possible.
Filemaker just created a section for folks just getting started with learning Filemaker New to FileMaker
Please post more information on what you are trying to do.
Why are you creating a variable $$DATE?
What Table are you trying to preform the Find in?
Can you post the exact steps you are trying?
Are the Fields of Date type?
Well, no need use script, I did a find using the table view or list view. My country uses the dd/mm/yyyy date format.
In a table I have 7 registries with 18/06/2017 date, I did click in find and put these date and Filemaker shows that message.
And I think that the problem is with date fields type
You can't use a variable in a manual find. You'd need a script.
I know, but the problem not is in a script.
I try to do a find in manual mode and when I put 18/06/2017 and shows the message the date change to 18 06 2017
What is the OS setting for Dates?
What is the format of the date field (in layout mode, Inspector, Data tab)?
manual mode: Press Ctrl-F (Windows) resp. cmd-F (OSX) for 'Find Mode' (thats the 'manual find mode'), then type 18/6/2017 into the date-field and press the enter-key (or hit the button on top-right of the window)
Is that field of type 'Date'? After entering Find Mode: Click into that field and press cmd-i (ctrl-i on windows), it shows then all existing values of that field (if its a 'normal' field)
(assuming, Your OS 'knows' those shortcuts, no problem in english, german, OS)

What Computer are you using (MAC-WINDOWS)?
Verify the Operating System Dates are the same as what you are using in Filemaker. Found in System Preferences on MAC.
What Version of Filemaker are you using?
What is the Field Type of the date field?
Look at the date field prior to performing a FIND and tells us how the date is listed/written?
Is the date listed as 08/04/2017 or 04/08/2017?
Did you follow Beverly and Markus's directions?
Was this once a text field that you converted to type "date"?
This can cause problems and this sounds similar to reports of that issue.
Nope, I was created as date field.
I think that I can try to create a new date field and copy the dates with GetAsDate to the new.
