Tech note FS1428
Is FlashStats year 2000 compliant?
To solve these problems, we are working on version 1.5. Beta 2 (Windows and Macintosh only) has been released. If you are experiencing any Y2K problems, please download and try the new version to help us verify that it properly fixes all Y2K problems. (Version 1.5 will be a free upgrade for all registered users.)
Download FlashStats 1.5 beta 2.
If your copy of FlashStats correctly analyzes dates in the year 2000 and your only problem is the Report Request Form, then you can continue to use FlashStats by manually selecting the year in the drop-down list on the Report Request Form. If you'd like to fix this problem before version 1.5 becomes available, you have two options:
- You can download updated Report Request Forms (standard and advanced). If you replace your existing forms, be sure to copy over any modifications you have already made to your existing forms.
- If you've made extensive changes to your existing Report Request Forms, you can make them Y2K compliant with a few simple changes. Simply change each occurrence of the string ".getYear() - 95" to ".getFullYear() - 1995". There should be exactly 8 occurrences of this string.
All registered users will be notified when version 1.5 becomes available. We apologize for the inconvenience!
