DO you always want to run for current date or do you want it to be changeable?

If you always want to run for today then you can create an object in the universe for CurrentDate and use it in the filter.

If you want it to be changeable then it is more complex.  It is still done in the universe

We had a similar requirement and what we did was create a prompt with a default value of TODAY.  The prompt then checks if the value is TODAY it returns current date otherwise it returns the value entered converted to a date.

I am trying to find the example.
