Selects documents by matching the character string you specify with the starting characters of the values stored in a specific document field. For example, you can search for documents, modified last on December 23, 2010 by searching for "20101223" in the lastChanged field. Since the values in this field include the date and the time, the field values must be matched with STARTS:

lastChanged <#STARTS> 20101223

Date values are indexed by the Content Manager and the Template Engine as 14-digit numbers with the following format: year (4 digits), month, day, hour, minute, second (two digits each).
