What’s Happened to my Dates?

You can’t enter anything else eg ‘ABT’, ‘BEF’ ‘Circa’ etc. so if your import file contains approximate dates, or dates with additonal text, you might need to adjust or re-enter these.

Dates must be in the format YYYY-MM-DD

But you can enter YYYY only and it will display eg 1900.

You can also enter YYYY-MM without a day and that will display eg 1900-03.

There is an option to “Only show year” in the “TreePress Options” tab, which will then simply display the year.
