Tip of the Day
Language: Visual Basic
Expertise: Beginner
Jan 16, 1998

Year 2000

Question:
Do you have any information on Year 2000 compliance effort for VB4 / VB5 systems?

Answer:
Visual Basic itself is and has been year 2000 compliant. The built-in Date format is able to store years through the year 9999. The main problem is that many users don't take advantage of this feature and store dates as strings or two digit years. To avoid these problems, always use the full four digit year whenever you request dates from your users.
