You can enter dates and times into Personal Knowbase in several places, including Article Windows and various dialog boxes. Dates can also come from imported files. Following are the rules used to interpret dates:
Date Format: Personal Knowbase uses the Windows date ("short date") and time ("long time") formats. Use the Windows Control Panel to change your date and time formats.
In Windows XP, these settings are in the Control Panel's Regional and Language Options section.
In Windows 7, these settings are in the Control Panel's Clock, Language, and Region section under Region and Language.
In Windows 8.1, these settings are in the Control Panel's Clock, Language, and Region section under Region.
In Windows 10, these settings are in the Control Panel's Clock & Region section under Region.
Default Year: If you enter a date without a year, the current year is used. For example, if you enter a date using MM/DD notation, the software automatically adds the current year.
Century Assumption: If you enter a year as 2 digits, the century is determined by the setting from the Articles tab of the Preferences Dialog Box (File Menu). By default, all 2-digit years are treated as if they are dates from 2000 to 2099. This setting can change that range.
Note that if you display only 2-digit years, it isn't always clear what century a displayed year belongs to. To avoid ambiguity, we recommend that you enter all years as 4 digits and that you display 4-digit years using the Windows Control Panel.
