modify a view to show only the documents in the database up to 1 month old

I am trying to modify a view to show only the documents in the database up to 1 month old.  The original selection is:

notes:=@If(@IsDocBeingEdited; "FullPC"; "PC");
web:=@If(@IsDocBeingEdited; "FullPCW"; "PCW");
@If(@IsNewDoc; Form; @ClientType = "Web"; web; notes)

I want to limit this selection to the last month only and thought I may use the following but am not sure where status would fit in the @if statement.

status:=@if(@created > startdate; @true; @false);

Any help would be appreciated

What the first 3 formulas are supposed to do in a view I fail to see.

    SELECT @created > startdate

I have just looked at the @if statement again and I don't think it can be modified to include a time limitation.  

The database can have documents created either via the Web or via the client and the 3 lines that are in the view selection are only selecting which form to use for the view depending on how the document was created.    
Sjef BosmanGroupware ConsultantCommented:
a) @If can include a time, see the select above.
b) not true (unless the view is set to Discard the index every time)

Where is that formula?? It doesn't seem anything like a selection formula. Isn't it the Form formula in a view, indicating with what form to open a document??

Please tell me where we're going...

It is in the view but whenever I save the view with SELECT in the formula -- even SELECT @all, when I next open the view, SELECT has gone

Which Notes version?

Strange behaviour... When I look at the Objects for the view, in the Designer, below the view at the left, I see View Selection and Form Formula (and a lot of others).
View selection should ALWAYS contain the word SELECT followed by a statement resulting in true or false.
The Form Formula can contain a formula that will be used to determine what form is to be used when opening a document.

If you don't see a SELECT when the View Selection is opened (please check that), there is something terribly wrong with your database. It might need a good rub with Compact and Fixup. If you want me to have a look at the view, you can mail a db to me, see my EE-profile. Create an empty db, and put only that view in it (copy/paste). In the ACL, set Default to Manager. Please zip before mailing...
