The DATE Field

The date should be entered as three separate numbers:

YEAR MONTH DAY

Each number should be separated from the others by at least one space. The year and month should be integers. If they are not, they are truncated to integers. The day can be a decimal number. The fractional part is treated as a fractional part of a day and it is added to the value obtained from the time field.
