I have been playing around with the "Save". I put just a year date in the "date" entry but I am going back through the census and entering the day and month. By doing this, the sort date is automatically added. If I don't use the day and month and just put in the year, I have to enter the year in the "Sort".
I am so glad that I put a message on this board as it probably would have taken me quite some time before the "light bulb" came on in my head to figure this out
