I would like undated books to show up in the bibliography as undated, e.g. as something like:

Oslo kommune (undated). Nedre poenggrense for inntak til Vg1 (videregående trinn 1) for ungdommed opplæringsrett, skoleåret 2014/2015, 1. inntaksrunde. Online, accessed 07.05.15. url: http://www.vilbli.no/Data/Artikkelvedlegg/018630/2014_Nedre_poenggrense_1._inntak_Vg1.pdf.

Now, the date field is left empty, which then leaves that area empty in the output as well. What I want to do then, is make it something like the example above.

The MWE now looks like this:

\documentclass[oneside,12pt,a4]{book}

\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}

\usepackage[ 
    style=authoryear-comp,
    backend=bibtex,
    dashed=true,
    natbib=true,
] {biblatex}

\DefineBibliographyStrings{english}{bibliography = {References}}

\pagestyle{plain}

\begin{document}

@book{Oslokommune2014,
    author = "{Oslo kommune}",
    title = "Nedre poenggrense for inntak til Vg1 (videregående trinn 1) for ungdom med opplæringsrett, skoleåret 2014/2015, 1. inntaksrunde",
    url = "http://www.vilbli.no/Data/Artikkelvedlegg/018630/2014_Nedre_poenggrense_1._inntak_Vg1.pdf",
    note = "Online, accessed 07.05.15",
    date = "",
}

\end{document}

    Welcome to the site. For posting code, rather than including a > before each code line, highlight the code and click the {} icon above the edit box. This will indent your code 4 spaces in the edit box, which has the effect of rendering it as code by readers of your post. Commented Apr 5, 2016 at 11:41

    What about Citations with no date, e.g. (Aristotle n.d.) ?

I think, using year = "undated"instead of date =" "should do the trick. The reason, I think, why something like date = "undated" does not work is that the date field requires a properly formatted date expression while the year field does not.

@book{Oslokommune2014,
    author = "{Oslo kommune}",
    title = "Nedre poenggrense for inntak til Vg1 (videregående trinn 1) for ungdom med opplæringsrett, skoleåret 2014/2015, 1.
inntaksrunde",
    url = "http://www.vilbli.no/Data/Artikkelvedlegg/018630/2014_Nedre_poenggrense_1._inntak_Vg1.pdf",
note = "Online, accessed 07.05.15",
    year = "undated",
    }

This way, you can put arbitrary strings in the date field, like e.g. “to appear”, “in press”, or whatever you like.
