This is just a general Question, I wonder if the TDate Formats of Delphi 4 are Year 2000 compatible, also the Delphi 4 compiled EXE-Files. If not, is there any way to avoid this problem ?

Borland/Inprise have a Y2K statement on their web site for Delphi - it is compliant (I think both D3 and D4 are comliant)

Cheers,

By using the ShortDateFormat command in your main forms Create Procedure, you can make Delphi use the long dates (DD/MM/YYYY or MM/DD/YYYY etc).

Just do something like:

ShortDateFormat := 'MM/DD/YYYY';

That makes your program use the long dates.
