Erroneous Date on New Title

I just notice I made an error when I submitted the video "Frequent Flyer" (1994) (V) (https://www.imdb.com/title/tt12333822/reference) this morning.  The date in the title should be 2004, as listed in the submitted release date of September 2004. The distribution company date is also listed with 2004.  I guess I must have submitted the erroneous date somehow when I submitted the title for inclusion.   (200516-124718-058000).  I tried to submit a corrected title, but I got this error message: "The year in the new title must match the year in the old title. If you need to change the year as included in the title, please submit a release date corresponding to the new year.
Since the release date is already correct, I'm at a loss on how to make the necessary correction.  Does anyone know a workaround.?

Copy what I have done below and submit it. You're not correcting the title. You're correcting the release date.

Well, the release date of September 2004 is correct - it's the title date of 1994 that's wrong.  Or are you suggesting, I change the release date to the incorrect 1994 and subsequently change both the release date and the title to the correct date?  If so, that seems kinda bass-ackward to me.

Hi David -

I can see that the title is now listed under the correct title year (2004): https://www.imdb.com/title/tt12333822/


Cheers!
