I am dealing with this problem in two places right now.  One is the as/400 has
L-type date fields, but we must print MM/DD/YY on report, and the move to *MDY
date fails.  This will not change for 2000, we will still show two digit year.

Other is EDI transaction 945, version ANSI 3060, date is in MDY format, and
another field has YYYY.
