The reason why I set it up since I wanna let users to have a better idea of what the date format is.
Oh. I see. Well, it makes a little more sense now. Smile

"so" field???
Actually, I mistyped. It should be the "sb" field. That stands for "sort by."

In the html.pl file, sub html_search_options, there is the following code:

Code:

Sort By:
<SELECT NAME="sb">
<OPTION>---
~; for (my $i =0; $i <= $#db_cols; $i++) { print qq~<OPTION VALUE="$i">$db_cols[$i]</OPTION>\n~ if ($db_form_len{$db_cols[$i]} >= 0); } print qq~
</SELECT>
This allows users to sort by any field they want to select from a drop-down select field. If you would rather have all results sorted by a specific field every time anyone does a search, replace the code above with

<input type="hidden" name="sb" value="the number of the field you want to sort by">

But do I have to add/change anything else in order to make use of it?
Nope. This will allow users to sort by either whole dates or partial dates. However, if they search for a whole date and they have the format wrong, they will not get any search results.
