I have a field in an Access database set as a date and with a mask as date mm/dd/yy. On my app I have a masked edit control set to retrieve this field the mask property is set to 99/99/00;0; and the format to mm/dd/yy.  When I run my app it will display 11/24/_8 if the year is set to 98 in the database. If I turn the 98 to 68 it displays fine in the control.  When debugging booth the mask and the database field say 11/24/98. What could be the problem? Thanks.
Tried to remove mask from database but still get the same result.

forget the masked edit, use format(value,"Short Date") to represent the data in a standard textbox or label.
If you need to do fomatted input as well, break it into separate text boxes for month, day & year - Use month(value) day(value) and year(value) to return the separate parts of the date.
