 4-digit year prefix behaviour
Hello,

Is there anyone out there who can tell me something about auto-prefixing
within Paradox4.0 for DOS?
I' ve found PDOX4 to be Y2K compliant, but due to the auto-add-19 I will
have to enter 2000 in full form in each date field. Is there a way to make
PDOX40 "eat" a date like 01/03/00 and storing this as 01/03/2000?
Does anyone know anything about the inner
accept-date-one-way-and-store-it-another-way-mechanism?

With kind regards,

Floris van Luin

I have done some date testing in Paradox 5 and this is what I've found.
Paradox does not just add 19 per say.  It adds the current century.  So if
the current date is 12/31/1999  and you enter a date like  6/1/00 pdox will
interpet it as 6/1/1900.  But if you enter the same date  (6/1/00) on Jan
1st 2000 it will add the century and interpet it as 6/1/2000

Hope this help.

Since his question was about pdoxdos, not pdoxwin, it really *doesn't* help..
and, just so you know, the rules, defaults, and problems of *other* pdoxwin
versions aren't the same as pdoxwin 5 either..

You are correct that some problems in earlier or later version are not the
same, but some are.
I apologize for my ignorance in earlier versions, and although my posting
may have not been helpful to this particular problem, it may have helped
others with similar concerns.
