Tom: I don't think you should worry about the y2k problem, unless you have a time or date dependent application which tracks time and date for doing certain tasks. Almost all applications that do that on PC's are fairly recent and require operating systems that are used on newer computers which do not have the y2k problem. Older computers (PC's) built around two-digit year format are history, but unless you have the date dependent application in your older computer you do not have a problem. Almost all older engineering application programs do not track date to perform analysis or design, except for date stamping the data files or printouts. So, even if your older computer says it's February 6, 1900, your analysis or design program should care less. Now if you have an older database program on an older PC that tracks date and time for billing, sorting, or any data manipulation, then you will have a problem. Newer programs of this type will not install on older PC's anyway, so there's no point discussing it. I hope I'm right and it helps:-) Regards, Oshin Tosounian, S.E. Structural Design Group
