I do see the [Bug Creation] field in the list box. But I ran into problems 
when I used "7 days ago" as a search criteria using the [Bug Creation] 
field. Here is what I did:

1. Selected [Bug Creation] from the list box.
2. Entered "7 days ago" in the second field available under the "were 
changed between" label. I left the first date field empty
3. When I do the search, I get an error back as follows:

"The string 7 days ago is not a legal date"

Please help..
