10.2.5 Year 10000 (Y10K) Problems

Most intrinsics returning, or computing values based on, date information are prone to Year-10000 (Y10K) problems, due to supporting only 4 digits for the year.

See the following for examples: FDate Intrinsic (function), FDate Intrinsic (subroutine), IDate Intrinsic (UNIX), Time Intrinsic (VXT), Date_and_Time Intrinsic.
