The following list provides a quick overview of how dates are handled:
SQL Anywhere always returns correct values for any legal arithmetic and logical operations on dates, regardless of whether the calculated values span different centuries.
The internal storage of dates by SQL Anywhere always explicitly includes the century portion of a year value.
The operation of SQL Anywhere is unaffected by any return value, including the current date.
Date values can always be output in full century format.
