Word Explanation
sliding window

A technique for determining the century (high-order digits) of a year that is represented in two-digit format, which is a variation on the fixed window remediation technique. In this method, the pivot point changes when the system year (usually the current year) changes. A 100-year window is designated, spanning two centuries. For example, if the pivot year is 70 during 1998, then during 1999 it will be 71. If the window is set at 35 future years (1971-2005) and 64 past years (1906-1969), dates in the range 00 through 05 will have the century field 20 because they fall into the future window. Dates in the range 06 through 99 fall into the past window and will have the century field 19.
