This will give you all files which have been modified in 2009.
As I hinted in last post, I thought I'd cracked it. I tried pezzonovante's version, albeit with other dates. It still doesn't do it. Back to the tutorials

Hi Rinwald
PLease forgive me if I am "teaching grannie to suck eggs" here but I tried this and eventually discovered that what I was doing was selecting one date a month ago and then selecting today's date. What I needed to do was select the first date, hold down the mouse butoon and drag through the calendar to the current date. This selects all intervening dates and shows the correct range in the search box. I found the dragging went at a rate like the Jules Verne Time Machine but with a bit of practice it was OK.
EDIT: Also can be done this way: select first date then in box type, space two dots space then last date using same date format as first date.

Actually I think I am still here, though at times I am not too sure. I guessed right as far as you are concerned as the saying "Teaching grannie etc" is concerned has an unfortunate modern conotation which is one of my pet hates.
