2 Digit Year Isue

2 Digit Year Issue

Some of our clients were having issues with date entry in various applications since the 1st of Jan

The issue relates to how windows interprets a 2 digit year. Under control panel, regional and language, click on customize , then click on the date tab.  The first section the calendar shows the range of years used to interpret the 2 digit year. This was set to 1911 to 2010 on some PC’s- when they entered a date for 2011 as 2 digits windows converted the year to 1911.

To fix this simply move the year to 2050.
