YRABSTART

The YRABSTART option sets the specific 100-year period associated with years that are read or displayed using a two-digit abbreviation.

Data Type

INTEGER

Syntax

YRABSTART = year

Arguments

year

A four-digit INTEGER expression that indicates the year at which the 100-year period begins. You can specify any value in the range 1000 to 9999. However, when you specify a value greater than 9900 for year, requests to read or display two-digit year values that correspond to a year later than 9999 will result in a return value of NA. The default is 1950; two-digit year abbreviations are interpreted as being in the range 1950 to 2049 unless a different range is set through YRABSTART.

Examples

Example 6-115 Using the Default Value

The following statements specify a date format and send output to the current outfile.

DATEFORMAT = '<Mtextl> <d>, <yyyy>'
SHOW MAKEDATE(96 9 13)

These statements produce the following output.

September 13, 1996

Example 6-116 Setting the 100-Year Period for a Date

The following statements set a 100-year period of 2000 to 2099 and send the output to the current outfile.

YRABSTART = 2000
SHOW MAKEDATE(96 9 13)

These statements produce the following output.

September 13, 2096
