This article was previously published under Q254562


In Schedule+ for Microsoft Windows, if you type a two-digit date in a four-digit date box, Schedule+ may interpret the date incorrectly. This problem occurs if:

  • You set the short date format for Windows (under Regional Settings in Control Panel) to use a four-digit year (such as dd/mm/yyyy). -and-

  • In Schedule+, you type a two-digit year in any four-digit date box.

The following symptoms occur:

  • If you enter a two-digit year in an appointment, Schedule+ always assumes that the year is 19xx.
  • If you insert a two-digit year in a "To Do" task, Schedule+ always sets the year to 1900.
