We're on Civi 4.6.17 and Drupal 7.
We have historic data that was imported from a previous system. There are some Contributions of type Member Dues that I want to change to a different Contribution Type - [Organization Name] Contribution - because the Contribution was misclassified when originally entered or imported.
But, the contribution was made before 1/1/1996. When I Edit the Contribution type a message pops up to "Please enter a date between 01/01/1996 and 12/31/2026".
Is the only way around this to go in to the back-end MySQL table for Contributions and change the type?
