YRABSTART = year
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.
