Set the cutoff year for determining the century for a date (used in conjunction with dateFormat 'y'). If a numeric string only ('0'-'99') is provided then this value is used directly. If a string value has a '+' then it is added to the current year. Once the cutoff year is calculated, any dates entered with a year value less than or equal to it are considered to be in the current century, while those greater than it are deemed to be in the previous century.
