I wrote some programs in RPG IV to do all of our date stuff, and get us ready for Y3K. They have a date range of 1900-2899 (7 digit CYYMMDD date fields are the shop standard). We will probably expand our date fields on screen, where practical, to 4 digit years. The nice part about this approach is that all the work is done by 2 programs, and if the 1940-2039 "window" should change, I need only make the change there. For birth dates, and the like, it'll be 4 digit years, no matter what. I'm still interested in your routines, just to see how the rest of the world is doing it.. :) -- Francis Lapeyre email@example.com ____________________________________________________________ | | |"The probability of life originating from accident is | |comparable to the probability of the Unabridged Dictionary | |resulting from an explosion in a printing factory." | | | | --Prof. Edwin Conklin | |____________________________________________________________| ****** Unsolicited commercial e-mail is not tolerated here. ******* ****** Senders of such mail do so at their own peril. ******* ****** A copy, complete with header, is forwaded to the ******* ****** originating ISP for action. ******* Opinions are my own.
