I don't believe I have it working, but have made progress

I believe the issue was I was using a SortField() instead of a SortedNumericSortField()

I tried your suggestion and was able to get the indexing to work (I assume it's correct),
but now the search is throwing an error...

	unexpected docvalues type SORTED_NUMERIC for field 'Planned Completion Date' (expected=NUMERIC).
Use UninvertingReader or index with docvalues.

My search code:
	topDocs =, q, null, MAX_HITS, new Sort(new SortField("plannedCompletionDate",
SortField.Type.LONG, !sc.isAscending())), false, false, fc);       

My index code:
	//copied from
	public static final FieldType LONG_FIELD_TYPE_STORED_SORTED = new FieldType(LongField.TYPE_STORED);

  	static {

	doc.add(new LongField(field.toString(), time,LONG_FIELD_TYPE_STORED_SORTED));      
              doc.add(new SortedNumericDocValuesField(field.toString(), time));

Any ideas?
Thanks in advance

You need to use a SortedNumericDocValuesField, which allows for multiple numeric values to
be stored per-document.  I’m not sure if that’s in Lucene 5.0, though, you may need to
upgrade to something more recent.
