Search for month in ANY year

Post by aussieboykie » Thu Jan 10, 2019 3:01 am

C:\SomeFolder dm:jan will find all January items from the current year

and

C:\SomeFolder dm:last10jan will find all January items from the last 10 years excluding the current year

It would be useful to have a way of finding all January items regardless of year, past or current, e.g.

C:\SomeFolder dm:anyjan

I do have on my TODO list to add an option to search for files modified in January for any date, something like: dm:*/1/*

For now, you might like to try the following search:
<dm:198001|dm:198101|dm:198201|dm:198301|dm:198401|dm:198501|dm:198601|dm:198701|dm:198801|dm:198901|dm:199001|dm:199101|dm:199201|dm:199301|dm:199401|dm:199501|dm:199601|dm:199701|dm:199801|dm:199901|dm:200001|dm:200101|dm:200201|dm:200301|dm:200401|dm:200501|dm:200601|dm:200701|dm:200801|dm:200901|dm:201001|dm:201101|dm:201201|dm:201301|dm:201401|dm:201501|dm:201601|dm:201701|dm:201801|dm:201901>

Note: this only goes back to January 1980.

Thanks for the suggestion.

Thanks for considering. For now I can use <dm:last10jan|dm:jan> to cover the last 10 years.
