When the example file below is added to the agenda file list, and 
I perform an agenda property search (C-c C-a m), I can't seem to 
locate any CLOSED items if I use the date matching format, for 
example these don't work...

CLOSED>="<2009-01-01>"
CLOSED="<2009-01-07>"

... but a regexp search like this...

CLOSED={2009}

... works fine.  For DEADLINE, an exact date matches fails...

DEADLINE="<2009-01-28>"

... but an inequality match succeeds...

DEADLINE>="<2009-01-28>"

FWIW I'm using version 6.17b.  Am I just using this format 
incorrectly?

Thanks,
Bart

This one works fine for me.

This one does not, because the CLOSED time stamp
in the example also contains a time, while you comparison value is  
taken to be at midnight.

My apologies.  I recently installed 6.17b, but to the wrong lisp 
target directory (i.e. so I was effectively using an older 
version of the code, 6.12b I think).  After installing it in the 
proper directory this works fine.

:-)  Yes, many problems come from running one version and reading the  
manual of another version :-)

I am glad it works.  Even though, looking at your post, I am wondering  
if it would be useful
to limit the comparison to "date-only" if the comparison value is a  
date without a time.......

That's probably a good idea to avoid confusion, though I'm not 
sure how often one searches for a specific day with these.  For 
closed items I tend to use a timeline display, but was looking at 
using a range of dates instead when I noticed the problem.  The 
only reason I tried a single date was to produce another data 
point after I noticed that the '>=' seemed to fail.
