I have read the whitepaper on dates from the website. That paper states that
there are no date related issues for any Infomaker products after version
4.0. Is this correct?

I am currently running IN5.0 and am wondering if I can expect any Y2K issues
to arise.

Thanks
Greg

That's correct. PB has a few very obscure ones, but they don't apply to IM.
Just make sure that you use long date formats as much as possible. Check
with your DBA about the effects of using short dates when modifying data.
E,g, in Oracle you change the behavior of how inserts are handled depending
on certain NLS_DATE parameters.
Apply the appropiate Y2K patches to your W95 / NT machines.
