A 105-year-old Swedish woman was surprised recently when she received a letter explaining she had been offered a spot at a local preschool class.

Anna Eriksson, 105, lives in a nursing home near Tierp in eastern Sweden, about 130 kilometres north of Stockholm.

But the Swedes's three-digit age didn't stand in the way of her receiving a letter recently from the Central School in Tierp, letting her know the school had a spot for her in a class of children due to turn six next year.

The school's principal, Marinna Eriksson (no relation) confirmed for the local Upsala Nya Tidning (UNT) newspaper that Anna had received the letter, as had more than 60 other local children.

The personnummer problem is Sweden's millenium bug.
Nordea has already stopped accepting the 10 digit version for their online banking services.

Yes, some computer did not know what, "1917" was so it interpreted it as "2007".
