This causes me to wonder, how many of us are out there creating a new date
problem in our applications? For example, have you created any printer files
or display files with a *MDY output field? If so, did you realize that these
are likely to fail on Jan 1st, 2040.


Will I care in 40 years when I am at retirement age and my code is beyond it
useful lifespan, hmmmm sounds just like those guys who started the two digit
date thing.  <grin!>  I see no effect on my business now! Actually I would hope
in 10 or 20 years they can change it to slowly forward and that the year 40
cutoff would no longer be necessary.
