Abstract: When the year 2000 arrives, many computer programs will be unable to process the date because they are designed to recognize only the last two numbers of a given year, so that 2000, with the end digits 00 will read to computers as 1900. or a century earlier. The programming flaw will have a wide impact on business, industry and government worldwide unless measures are taken immediately be begin correcting it.
