Eliminate 1900 as the earliest timeline year
« on: June 21, 2012, 09:12:28 PM »
Really!?!  1900?  That's the earliest year!  I know why the limitation, but, to move away from that restriction.  Seriously, need to re-do the timeline functionality.  There are other uses for this feature besides just modern day planning.  Why force someone to seek out an alternative solution to Visio when they have tasks that document dates earlier than 1900?

of course that doesn't address the several different calendars that are out there (aztec ?)

Thanks Al --

I know the reason for the 1900, and David Parker has a good solution, but, it's a work-around.  Visio doesn't run on an abacus, it runs on a computer.  It doesn't have to be strapped to the calendar, that's medieval.
