Mike, I work for a very large southeastern bank, and the OCC is VERY strict
when it comes to Y2K testing and contingency plans.  We have tested all of
our AS/400 applications (Both of 'em!), on a separate Y2K test box that we
rolled the dates on.  We basically had to test for several scenarios, 12
Dec 1999, 1 Jan 2000, and 29 Feb 2000.  Our testing had to be completely
documented and has even been reviewed by internal auditing as well as
internal Y2K department, and the OCC.  As part of our testing we also had
to implement a Change Management system so that we could prove every change
after the test was documented.

We even have to have a contingency plan for everything.  We will lock out
all changes beginning in November and a moratorium will be in place until
March 1999.  We will have a support staff on site on Jan 1 2000 to verify
all major critical applications and systems.

In short, you have a big job ahead of you, if you like I can offer some
more detailed docs for you to looks at.

As for me, I bought extra Girl Scout cookies this year, just in case!! ;)
