Express 2000 Suite
||Is a network-based software inventory
and metering package that matches programs against a database
of more than 6,000 applications to determine levels of compliance.
It helps you discover completely of noncompliant PCs and applications,
prioritize, and control your desktop Year 2000 problems.
||Uses a very fast scanning engine to locate
date-related problems in popular spreadsheet and database files
and unstructured text files. The package centers its analysis
around five levels of severity that you can customized to focus
on your real date issues rather than on phantom problems. It
also scans embedded Visual Basic code in Excel and Access files
to uncover buried Y2K issues.
||It focuses only on applications with Y2K
compliance issues. 2000 Toolbox provides concise descriptions
of Y2K issues in the noncompliant application along with workarounds
that help you circumvent the problem, such as always using four-digit
years in Excel. The database and spreadsheet analysis features
in 2000 Toolbox locate Y2K date problems in Microsoft Excel,
Access, and FoxPro, Visual dBASE, and text files, plus many
Year 2000 Packs
||Is designed to run on a network and supports
more file formats than any other package we tested.It comes
with CenturyPack modules for analyzing Microsoft Access, FoxPro,
and Excel; :Lotus Approach and 1-2-3; and various languages,
including Visual Basic and C/C++.
||Scans key areas of PCs, including the
BIOS, operating system, application, and user data files, and
reports on date dependencies and advice for getting around Y2K
issues. It provides useful information to asses your Y2K risk,
but look to Check 2000 Client Server for remediation help. The
client/server version runs on a network and automates much of
the data collection and scanning in addition to delving into
data files to find date issues. When it does find a date problem
in a file, it assists with remediaion by letting you launch
the app, correct the data, field mask, or format, and continue
||DateSpy locates date-sensitive values,
formats, formulas, and macros in Excel spreadsheets, Visual
Basic modules, and OLE or DDE links.DateSpy requires that Excel
5.0 or later be installed on the scanning PC, and it generates
detailed reports in Excel format. A report summary page shows
the number of workbooks, sheets, and modules found using your
search criteria. The report's detail area shows what values
were found in which moduels, the cell locations, and the formats
and formulas that were used on the values.
||Finds Y2K anomalies in your important
- Identifies, prioritizes, and reports on two-digit date calculation
anomalies in spreadsheet cells and formulas, database fields
and forms, and text.
- Scans Excel, Lotus 1-2-3, Access, dBase, Paradox, FoxPro,
and Clipper; supports all other file types via an unstructured
file analysis engine.
- Parses embedded Visual Basic and macros in Excel spreadsheets.
- Audits your software applications for year 2000 compliance
and tests them against a database of known year 2000 problems
Tests system BIOS and clocks
- Tests your system BIOS, real-time clock, and system clock
via a boot floppy that
prevents the inadvertent destruction of data and program configurations
- Fixes any BIOS/clock problems which can be fixed by software,
and tells you if you need to replace the BIOS.
||BloodHound diagnostic software provides
the user with an easy, fast, and accurate means of identifying
the amount and location of problem code lines in a number of
high-level programming languages C, Fortran Assembly, Pascal,
and many others.
||This software is very robust and can be
used to analyze source code written in any high level programming
language, on any platform and flags lines that potentially contain
Year 2000 problems. The reports can then be used to isolate
the critical Year 2000 problems in the application.
