Issue: Upon repeated use, calendar pop-up displays dates before 2000 incorrectly


Users may often enter dates for events that occurred before the year 2000, such as birthdates.

When you use the calendar display to enter a date, the date automatically displays in the Date field when you: 

  1. Select the month from the drop-down menu.
  2. Use the arrow keys to select the year or type in the calendar year.
  3. Double-click the day of the month.

    NOTE: If you click Close without double-clicking the day of the month, the date will not display in the date field.

    If you need to make this selection for a second time, for example you clicked the wrong day of the month, the pre-2000 date displays with two zeroes (00) rather than the correct digits:

The date also displays in the Date field in this incorrect format.
