This field is used to store a single date. The notation used is
YYYY is the 4-digit year,
MM is the 2 digit month (starting at 01) and
DD is the 2 digit day of the month (starting at 01).
DD may be omitted, giving the following possible values:

- [fieldname]_month SQL_TINYINT
- [fieldname]_day SQL_TINYINT
Date fields can be searched as either single values or ranges. Searching for "2006" will also match 2006-12-25. You can search for "2000.." to search dates in or after 2000. Or "2000-12..2003-01" for December 2000 through January 2003.
In addition to those properties available in EPrints::MetaField:
- Render labeled text entry boxes for year, month and day.
