How to select all caches, that were active on a given date?

I would have liked to see the map with the caches from the past, e.g. when we started caching.

Is there the possibility to select all caches in a definable area, that were active on a given date. Manually I can open the listing and check, if the listing was published BEFORE the given date and NOT ARCHIVED before this date.

When I select "archived" caches in project-gc I have no option to select an archived-date. Or is there the possibility?

I don't think there's an easy way, but if you load all the caches in a given area (including archived)to VGPS and then export them as a csv file, you could use Excel to filter by published and archived date, and then import the results to a new VGPS file.

Thanks for this workaround! Basically it works, but is more complicated than just selecting published and archived date as filter, e.g. in the "map compare". Since the dates show up in the VGPS, project-GC-database knows it. So I thought, there might be a way, e.g. via "personal" filter...
