    When I input 07/11/23, Access 97 automatically converts this to read
    07/23/2023, I want it to read 07/23/1923. What should I do?

    Please help! Debra Samuelson

    Input 07/11/1923.

    Access makes assumptions when you use 2 digt years. From 50 to 99 it adds
    1900. From 00 to 49 and adds 2000. That's why you are seen 1923.

    IMHO after the Y2K scare, any database developer worth their salt requires 4
    digit years. Even then we are setting up for a Y10K panic!

    Actually, the assumptions Access makes are dictated by the operating system.

    Go into the control panel, and look at the Regional and Language Options
    applet. On the Regional Options tab, click on Customize. On the Date tab,
    you'll be given an option to change how it interprets 2 digit years.
