Here is a break down of what happens with the various abbreviations:
CA - sort date defaults to the middle of the month or year
BEF - sort date defaults to the day before (so if you had BEF MAY 1896 it
would default to 30 APR 1896)
AFT - sort date defaults to the day after
ABT - sort date defaults to the middle of the month or year
Also keep in mind you can manually edit the Sort date.

I know what the CA, BEF, AFT, and ABT literally mean but I don't know when
to use them in UFT and what effect they have.
If I don't know the date of a marriage but I know the date of their first
born, I can put BEF NNNN as the date of marriage where NNNN is the year of
birth. If I put CA NNNN, however, I get a warning message.
This is just one example of my date confusion.
I NEED HELP.
Please excuse this message if you have aready received it.
