I am trying to determine how many requests were sent AND/OR received during
a given period (e.g., Apr 1, 2000 to present). We use a standardized
vocabulary in a user-defined fields that allows me to search on the word
"sent" for anything that left our organization as a request. I've tried
several approaches with no success. The manual states:
1. "Pending Reprints"
You can retrieve references for which you are awaiting reeipt of reprints by
entering the date you requested the reprint. References on request and for
which the request date is earlier or the same as the entered date will be
Use the same date format you specified in the Windows Control Panel in the
Regional Settings dialog.
2. "Reprint Status"
You can retrieve references for which you have reprints in file, that are on
request, or that are not in file.
It appears that any searching on the "Pending Reprints" date field imposes a
"less than or equal to" logic on the date entered with a corresponding value
of "on order" in the "Reprint Status" field. I do not seem to be able to use
the "Pending Reprint" field for items that are "In File" or "Not In File",
nor enter a date range (e.g., 01/04/2001-07/09/2001). Does anyone know of a
way around this?
