    from or in

    Daily temperature-taking was suspended from / in July 2003 when the need for this control measure was no longer necessary. Are there any errors in the sentence?

    Which preposition should be used?

    It depends what you mean.

    "From" means that it was suspended in July 2003, and continues to be suspended.

    "in" could mean that it was temporarily suspended in July, and only in July.
