Incorrect Query Results- Querying on 'Class of' for years greater than 2029

The Raiser’s Edge does not correlate the two-digit (‘YY) years after 2029 as mathematically equivalent to their four digit counterpart (YYYY).  This causes incorrect Query results.
We are currently evaluating this issue and will update this article when we have more information.
