Year Computer Problem Background The Year computer problem (Y2K) occurs because, in order to save memory and storage space in the computers, programmers historically used only the last two digits when recording years in the computer systems, i.e.

“98” instead of “” This approach was. The problem is that the need now exists to refer to the Yeara reference that older 'legacy' installations will not recognize.2 A significant portion of those older computers need to be replaced.

Many are embedded computers -- found, for example, in weapons sys- tems, ships, Author: Jack E. Brown. Unlike the Year problem, where significant digits were omitted from the stored values of years, fixing the Y problem does not require updating old records (assuming they are already Y2K-compliant), since all four significant digits are present.

It only requires that record storage in decimal be able to store five or more digits. Based on the results of these tests of the various settlement systems, the Bank of Japan says that the transfer of data with year dates was basically handled normally.

The financial institutions have now shifted the focus of their efforts from computer readiness to the preparation of contingency plans and are working steadily towards that end.
