I seem to recall this being a fairly old bug with OOo. What happens if
you enter the complete date instead ?

Interesting. I have the field masked as YYYY which I understood tells Base
to expect and accept only a year number. If I put in a full date (ie,
01/01/1996) the year shows up correctly. This doesn't seem to be proper
behaviour to me.

This, of course, brings up two questions: 1) how do I make this work the way
I need (having a field where the user simply puts in the 14-digit year); 2)
how do we get this fixed in Base so that it works correctly without having
to resort to the work-around requested in item 1 (see previous)?
