Re: FMPro 8 and Dates

Ted,

I believe you mean "import from a text file"; pasting "10/15/05" from the clipboard into a date field in 6, 7, or 8 properly interprets the value as "10/15/2005".  However, in 6.0v4, importing "10/15/05" from a text file has the behavior you describ; namely, the value is interpreted as "10/15/1905".  But in 7 and 8, this behavior has been fixed to properly interpret it as "10/15/2005".

It is interesting to note that in 6.0v1 (and maybe 6.0v2), the original behavior was to import the text "10/15/05" as "10/15/2005"; however, either the 6.0v3 or 6.0v4 update changed the behavior to the "1905" interpretation.
