The papers were just signed today making our 6.0.02 version of BPCS among the first certified for Y2K in the whole ($38B) company! We used a Y2K box, as the development box was out of the question for changing the system date (and you _DO_ need to change it). Plus, we circumvented the BPCS date routine SYS900B by renaming it to SYS900BX and calling _our_ SYS900B _CL_ to extract the current system date and performing a CHGJOB to enable 24-hour operation with ITH records written under the proper date -- making the CHGJOB option impossible. Beware that if you are running custom AS/Set programs, you need to re-gen them under ADK version 6.0.04 (yes, just like the BPCS one -- confusing, isn't it?). Be sure and run the program at the back of the ADK 6.0.04 installation manual to set your "cutover" date for % date functions... Regards, Dean Asmussen Enterprise Systems Consulting, Inc.
