Re: y2k bug in New Date, cannot set date back to 9

In Response To: Re: y2k bug in New Date, cannot set date back to 9 (Greg Akers)

Hi Greg: I went to work today (Monday 1/3/00), and immediately checked out my computer there, and the New Date Operation worked fine there.

I don't use the Alt/Z command when I quit X-Tree gold. I just hit "q".

Also please note the same problem exists if I hit the Alt/F3 (Rel Log Directory).
The file will come back in with the original date before it was New dated...

Mike...
