I have this code

~~~ "
~~~  name ~ 'OperabilityReview*' AND
~~~  form.name ~ '*OperabilityReviewForm' AND
~~~  ProjName ~ '%URLPARAM{"qPrj"}%*' AND
~~~  ( d2n(ReviewDate) >= d2n('%URLPARAM{"qDate1" default="1969-12-31"}%') AND 
~~~    d2n(ReviewDate) <= d2n('%URLPARAM{"qDate2" default="2020-12-31"}%') ) AND
~~~  ReviewStatus ~ '%URLPARAM{"qStat"}%*' 
~~~ "
~~~ type="query" 
~~~ format="|
~~~ $formfield(ProjName) | 
~~~ $formfield(ReviewDate) | 
~~~ $formfield(ReviewStatus)  | 
~~~ " }%

I expected that if ReviewDate was blank, then d2n(ReviewDate) would return 0 and match

>= d2n('%URLPARAM{"qDate1" default="1969-12-31"}%')

but it did not.

d2n of an empty string (unset field) is not documented.

I think

  1. it should be documented
  2. it should be 0
