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...
