How to search for blank date in field 008, positions 7-10 (Date 1)

Symptom
  • I would like to run an OCLC search by subject heading su:<subject of choice> but qualify it by a blank date in field 008 positions 7 through 10 (Date 1).

    The goal is to limit my results to subjects that have no date entered in field 008/7-10.
    Applies to

  • Connexion client
  • Connexion browser
  • Record Manager
Resolution

For no date, enter zeroes — su:<subject of choice> AND yr:0000.

Additional information

Using 0000 for a no date (uuuu) search as well as substituting zeros for the u’s are described briefly at this help page, near the bottom of the first column.
