Y2K Redux



  • I was working (more like debugging) on this jolly old Access system when something unexpected came up, for my task was to migrate it to Office 2007. Somehow, after months of work on this, let's be polite here, crappy system, I thought i saw it all. I thought this was almost over.

    Yet Life has a way to raise the old ghosts of the past.

    IIF(
        Left([trim_an];1)="H";
        "HIVER";
        IIF(
            Left([TRIM_AN];1)="E";
            "ÉTÉ";
            "AUTOMNE"
        )
    )
    & " "
    & "19"
    & Right([TRim_AN];2)

     Yep.  Y2K is back. Stack up on canned goods and water people, we're going down.

     Just needed to share this before i go mad. i need another coffee...



  • May I suggest an addition of a little cognac?

    Mais, j'comprends pas, il n'y a pas de printemps?

    Maybe the French are again trying to redefine the calendar again, except this time forgetting about Germinal, Floréal and Prairial



  • The world ends on December 31, so we don't need to worry about spring.
