Microsoft's compliance statement is:

"A Year 2000 Compliant product from Microsoft will not produce errors processing date data in connection with the year change from December 31, 2023 to January 1, 2024 when used with accurate date data in accordance with its documentation and the recommendations and exceptions set forth in the Microsoft Year 2000 Product Guide, provided all other products (e.g., other software, firmware and hardware) used with it properly exchange date data with the Microsoft product. A Year 2000 Compliant product from Microsoft will recognize the Year 2000 as a leap year.

"Disclaimer: The Statement of Compliance refers to the Microsoft product as delivered by Microsoft. The Compliance Statement does not apply to user customizable features or third party add-on features or products, including items such as macros and custom programming and formatting features. The Microsoft Statement of Compliance does not constitute a warranty or extend the terms of any existing warranty. The warranties provided for Microsofts products, if any, are set forth in the end user license agreements (EULAs) that accompany the products or the terms of the license agreement under which you make use of a Microsoft product. The information available from Microsoft concerning the Year 2000 is provided for the sole purpose of assisting our customers in their planning for the transition to the Year 2000."

"The products represented in this guide constitute an incomplete list of Microsoft products. Microsoft will continually update this guide with the most current Year 2000 test information."

"Microsoft understands the critical nature of the Year 2000 issue for organizations. IT professionals responsible for the Year 2000 health of Microsoft products used in their environments need to understand how Microsoft has tested its products. The bulleted list below represents the framework used by Microsoft to test the Year 2000 date handling capabilities of Microsoft products. The results of the testing process can be found in the Microsoft Year 2000 Product Guide.

  • The product stores and calculates dates consistent with a 4-digit format throughout its operational range.
  • If the product allows the user to enter a 2-digit short cut for the year, the product recognizes the year consistent with a 4-digit format
  • The product will correctly execute leap year calculations.
  • The product does not use special values for dates within its operational range for data.
  • The product will function into the 21st century, through the end of year 2035.

"Note: all references to "dates" refer to using either 4 digits or 2 digits for the YEAR portion of the date. This testing criteria does not constitute a warranty or certification expressed or implied, of any kind. "
