Marc.... thanks for ansewering my question of Y2K is such a big deal... that, I basically knew... Now, my question is: How do we know if our software is Y2K compliant? As you stated, there is a lot of software out there who claims to be Y2K compliant, but is not fully Y2K compliant or still have some gliches... that's the interpretation that I got... I believe many of us use Microsoft Office 97 package to write & calculate all our ISO/QS procedures....but as you said, Microsoft has one of the biggest problems... I I go ask them, they'll tell me that they have this problem under control... How will I know if my software is "really" compliant & they are not bullshitting me? Is there any software that we can install to resolve this problem?

Thanks again...

I really don't know the details about Microsoft stuff. I wouldn't worry, though. I believe they have 'fixes' out now. It's a matter of the software application not being 'truely' compliant, but at issue is will the fix work for you which I am sure it (they) will. I recon that for the most part every 2 to 3 years I upgrade 'significant' software so I myself am not concerned. I don't have spreadsheets with complicated formula nor do I have any with date calculation functions nor do I have any files where birth dates or 'far reaching' dates are needed or used. And - I have a Mac - so the issure is, for the most part, a moot issue to me.

How will I know if my software is "really" compliant & they are not bullshitting me? Is there any software that we can install to resolve this problem?
Well, I know there are at least 3 software packages out for PCs, but as I said in my post in the other thread, as far as I understand them they look at data files and determine if there *may* be a problem.

Try going to:

http://www.infoworld.com

and doing a search.

And there are a bunch of Y2K sites out there as well. I would bet there are advertisements for the software. Just read 'performance claims' well to ensure what the software will actually do. Again, as I understand them, they simply flag possible data files problems. They aren't 'fixed' or anything, just flagged (you get a listing of 'possible' problem files.

Remember, Y2K is not my forte - nor am I a programmer. If you're worried about important files and programs, check with the folks whose software you have (such as Microsoft). Personally, being a Mac person I don't worry about year 2000 in so far as my personal computer situation goes. And I don't believe everything, if much of anything, will 'fault' on 1 January 2000 or on 1 January 2001 nationally or internationally. I figure credit cards, air travel, grocery stores, gasoline pumps and all that will go right on cooking.

Y2K problems are over blown.

I rest with one cavat - it's 1999. Any company which hasn't got a handle on this issue by now is just plain - well, it's getting late in the game, my friend.
