Problem


The examples built OK, but I get the following error when I run the tutsetup executable:
D:
wDBToolsworkspacesWINNT4MSVC6011sexamplesdbt0321w>tutsetup
Assertion failed: ((!needAll || maxdigits == 0)) != 0, file
D:/rw/DBTools/parts/tls0710wsourcesrclocale.cpp, line 1068

abnormal program termination



Cause


This is caused by building Tools.h++ with the RW_CENTURY_REQD macro set and then using older data files in the examples that only have 2 digit years.


Action


To fix the problem, simply go into the data files in the DBTools.h++ examples directory and change the following files:

purchase.dat 
rental.dat
t4in.dat

The only modifications needed is to make the dates into 4 digit years. For example, change 02/01/94 to 02/01/1994. We will correct these dates in future versions of the examples.
