ACCPAC Year 2000 Compliance

All versions of ACCPAC for Windows and ACCPAC PLUS for DOS version 6.0A or higher are fully compatible with the dates after 1-1-2000.

ACCPAC Plus Accounting products version 6.0A or higher accept dates for the year 2000 and later. The system also correctly calculates dates for leap years.

For example, on January 1, 2000, you will enter the ACCPAC Plus sign-on date ("today's" date) as 01-01-00. If you enter a transaction for December 12, 1999, you will enter the date as 12-12-99. If you enter a payment due date of February 2, 2001, you will enter the date as 02-02-01. ACCPAC Plus will correctly handle all of these dates.

The following table shows how ACCPAC Plus Accounting interprets the dates you enter for the current and previous century.
