Dear Lloyd,

It is great that you thought ahead like you did.  I did call the 
software firm and they told me that they have no intention of fixing 
the package.  They further told me that according to my licensing 
aggreement, that I could not have the code altered by another person 
to fix the date field problem.  Only problem is that I dropped their 
contract 1 year after I bought the software because they accused me 
of altering their software when I installed another program on the 
machine.  They took my software off and sent it to their headquarters 
to see if I had violated their code.  I promptly gave them the boot.  
Even when I recently called them for an update, the woman started to 
yell at me about how they owned that code and I couldn't touch it and 
further she stated that she or her company didn't care if my machine 
dropped dead at the year 2000.

Roy
