TOWSON -- Baltimore County government has corrected about one-third of the 1.8 million lines of its computer code that need to be reviewed before 2000, and the entire job will be complete by March 1999, said county information and technology director William H. Bond.

The software work -- made necessary by the inability of some programs to process the change from the 1900s to 2000 -- will cost the county almost $3 million, Bond said.

Without the corrections, county financial records, payrolls, and personnel data would be affected.
