Is DBASE III PLUS Y2K compliant? Is there a way to change date with two digit year format to four digit representation in DBASE III PLUS?

Use the following statement to turn on the century:

Set Century On


FYI - I just worked with a company using dbase iii style databases under clipper. It is Y2K compliant.

I do not believe so, you will at least need to upgrade to dBase IV or FoxPro, sorry.

If I am not mistaken, the SET CENTURY and SET EPOCH commands are Clipper specific.  I don't think that dBase as a language is Y2K compliant.

I read in a german computer magazine (c't 23/1999 PAge 126) that dbase III+ cannot access databases with which were worked one time in the year 2000. This should be documented.

Thanks, guys.

Anyway, I am going to rewrite this application by Access 97. Thanks for all your suggestions and comments.
