One of the more common “problems” experienced by new users is in Sentences that use the Age Variable(s). The user wants the age to print, but it doesn’t print because one or more of the Dates needed for calculation is incomplete. In many cases, the user looks at Help, but gets no information there. This is because the information that is needed in located in a place that is counter-intuitive. That is, there is nothing in the Age [A] Variable Help wording that tells about printing year-only ages. Since the user is not interested in printing days, months, and years (can’t be done with incomplete dates anyway, they figure), they don’t read the second sentence of the Exact Age [AE] explanation.
The obvious “fix” to this situation is to change the [A] Variables to calculate years-only when the Date(s) are incomplete and possibly prepend the word “about” to the output to allow some ambiguity. Or, change the standard Sentences to use the [AE] Variables. This last is not necessarily desired as most users would not want the months & days parts all the time. Also, changing standard Sentences may not suit many current users.
This leaves only changing the [A] Variable function as first suggested above. However, this may require more work than feasible for an update, and/or may require some added re-design work. Thus, a third easy option is to revise Help to tell the user how the [A] Variables should be changed to [AE] when incomplete Date(s) are used.
