I have a date field with many dates showing the year 1901 which I need to update to 2001. Is there a way to do this?

I know there is a DATEPART function which allows searching only for the year portion of a field (i.e. DATEPART(yy, date_field)).

Can I run an update which will update all rows with a date of 1901-??-?? to 2001-??-??

Thanks for any help you could provide.

Maybe just this
UPDATE yourTable
SET yourDate = DATEADD(year,100,yourDate)
WHERE yourDate between '19010101' and '19011231'
