I have been trying to use the PCAdvisor search facility that came up with an number of postings. I only wished to see the last months postings, but whichever option I selected Past week, past month, past six months and past year I receive the same list of postings commencing with a posting dated 18th September 2006!!!

What can I be doing wrong?

It's not you. It's not working for me. Suspect a PCA glitch, temporary I hope.

use google search instead. replace the xxx's with your search term and then left of google under 'More Search Tools' you can choose your dates.

before selecting 'past week/month' change the order from 'relevancy' to 'date'

X7-250 has the answer. You need to select 'date' in the "order results by" option before selecting the time period.

Relevancy/Date has a priority over the date order and I would have thought that logically that the choice between relevance/date should come first (further up the page) before deciding date range.
