# 681Assigning an Invalid Date During Editing of a Record in a Table Cause DBSYS To Hang Sloppy code on my part allowed me to assign the following value to a date field: 0098-10-12 (as displayed in the db utility with ANSI Standard as the language setting). My application accepts this as a valid date, which it is I guess. However the year should be 1998, so I tried to change the value in the DBISAM database program - which then freezes and the machine runs out of resources within a few seconds.
CommentsThe problem is caused by the OldValue property trying to convert an invalid date to a string for display during a display procedure, thus causing a repetitive invalid variant type conversion error.
