I have a database that uses a global field to grab a date and bring back results - the field works well on all date searches except for a date range - any idea why?
You didn't state what you have tried. Here is a link to Finding a range of information, including dates.
sorry my post was so cryptic :) In this global field, I have tried the following: 1/15/2013 (works), >1/15/2013 (works), however, if I try 1/15/2013...1/31/2012, this brings back all the records for the entire month of January
Make sure the Global field it a Text field and try...
