One of my Utility Rates used: Effective Date = 1/1/1900, Effective Thru = 12/26/1997. The Rates report listed "Rate applies from Jan 1. 2000 to Dec 26. 1997". Same problem for an Effecitve Date of 1/1/1921. If the Effective Date is set to 1951, then the Rates report correctly lists it as 1951 instead of 2051. Is this a Y2K problem?2003-11-26
