Thank you for the fast answer, Mark. I'm just starting to work with Tinderbox and a lot is new to me
Had to look up the meaning of "RIS tag" and didn't know about "aTbRef".
Since PublicationYear is a String-type attribute, it seems that one can use it for just a year or any other more detailed information, including month and day, if available.
I'm trying to figure out how to use Tinderbox as a container and manager of a collection of references. Someone else has created a large collection of references and published them in 11 pdf files. Now I would like to import all this data into Tinderbox and separate the reference text from all the other information, which should become attributes. I have to find a way to do this in an automated way, if possible.
Maybe I should create another thread about this on the forum to see who can give advice on how to best do this?
