I'm assuming the date constraint is a number? Or at any rate
something that is not a string, yes? In that case you need
to be performing some kind of operation appropriate to that
type: equality, less than, etc. Wildcards are string operations
and they won't work against a non-string, I'm afraid.
So what you are really saying here is that you want a number
between 2010 and 2019 inclusive. You need to express your query
in those terms. Alternatively, set up the date range index
as a string.
