Year 2000 Compliance

Problem/Symptom:
Is ScienceWorkshop Software year 2000 compliant?

PASCO Solution:
Yes, the software is year 2000 compliant.

The only interaction Science Workshop software has with date dependence occurs when a hardcopy is printed from Science Workshop. Science Workshop acquires the date from utilities provided by Apple and Microsoft, and then prints this date on the top of the page. Otherwise, Science Workshop software will operate just fine regardless of the date.

If there are date errors in these print utilities, Apple and Microsoft Corporations will be making corrections to them. Even if they do not correct these errors, the only effect will be an incorrect date on Science Workshop printouts. Other than the potential for this minor inconvenience, please be assured that PASCO's Science Workshop is fully Year 2000 Compliant.
