Good Day All, I have converted a dBase IV database that has some old employee absences data. The data is pre 2000, and I want to add a number of years to the date field to bring me out of the stone ages. I want to do this through an update query, but I have not been successful.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I am using Windows XP and Access 2002 in 2000 mode.

Thanks in advance,

David

are you aware for the DATEADD("yyyy", 2000, yourdatefield)   to add 2000 years to the date field value...
assuming of course that the field is indeed datetime...
