Another newbie question: I've been exploring value switches in my sentence construction and I can see how they work when you're checking whether or not a field is being used. Is there a way to have the value switch recognize the CONTENTS of the field and construct the sentence accordingly?
Here's the problem I'm trying to solve: I use the death fact to bracket the dates of a person's life, even when I don't know the exact death date. For example, if an obituary lists only two siblings as survivors, I put the death date of all of the other siblings as "before 19XX" to indicate they died before the obituary and I should restrict my searches to that time period. However, it makes a horrible sentence: "John Doe died before 1956 at the age of 70." No, he would have been 70 if he had died in 1956 but for all I know, he died in 1932. "Between" does the same thing, only it chooses the earliest date to calculate the age. I was hoping the value switch could look at the date field and skip the age calculation if the date uses some modifier in it, yet include the age in the sentence if there's a normal date. Is there a way to do that? Or maybe there's another way to suppress the age in some circumstances but keep it in others?
