Date Field problem

Hi Experts,
I have a date question, I have a date field in a form called Terminated Date, I set it to a short date so that users just enter mm/dd/yy instead mm/dd/yyyy however, there is a little problem that it's ok that if user enter 12/31/29 then it shows 12/31/2029, but when user enter 12/31/30 then it will automatic change to 12/31/1930 instead 12/31/2030, can anyone tell me how should I fix?  I tested if I removed the short date format, it works fine, but if I add the short date format, it does that.  Please advice. (I'm using Ms Access 2010 front end and SQL 2005 back end)
