      Description

      Currently Data Field created in teh databases allow only years from 1970 to 2020.
      While in most cases the year before 1970 or after 2020 aren't used, there could be situations where it is needed to enter a wider (or even narrower) range of year.

      A very good improvement would be allowing teacher to set the year date range that would appear in the year drop down boxes when a Date Field is created: in such a way the year range could be both set for narrower or wider needs.
