[rt-users] Search Custom Field for Today's Date

Hi All,

I am using RT 3.6.4 on CentOS 5.0.  Everything stock seems to be  
working fine.

I've defined a few custom fields, one of which I am using as an  
appointment date field.  I would like to create a saved search called  
"Today's Assignments" that automatically searches the date field for  
today's date and returns matches.

Googling led me to articles that implied that you could use "TODAY"  
or "today" as a search criterion.  As yet I am unable to successfully  
make this search work.

I have tried the following date formats in the field:

YYYYMMDD (20070811)
MM/DD/YYYY (8/11/2007)

My search criterion line is:
	AND 'CF.{Appt. Date} = 'today'

I have also tried:
	AND 'CF.{Appt. Date} = 'TODAY'

I looked through my copy of RT Essentials and didn't find the  
information I needed there either.

Can anyone help?
