Preferences - Year 2000

The database tables record the date internally in the YYYYMMDD format. However, since the year component of date formats can be entered as YY, care must be taken to set the Year 2000 option.

Assume that a date input format of MM.DD.YY was defined; now apply it to the Preferences example shown i.e. 75:

entering12.31.00 will be recorded as 20001231
entering12.31.75 will be recorded as 20751231
entering12.31.74 will be recorded as 19741231
