year(theDate[,value])

Alternatively, use Date.year.

year(theDate)

returns the year from the theDate date/time expression, which may simply be a date-type attribute value.

year(theDate,value)

creates a new date based on the theDate date/time expression, but in which the year is value. theDate is not changed - unless theDate is an attribute and the attribute is re-setting itself:

$MyDateA = year($MyDate,2011) $MyDate is unaltered

$MyDate = year($MyDate,2011) $MyDate is changed

Examples. If $MyDate is July 4,2009, then

$MyDate=hour($MyDate,2011) 

will change $MyDate to July 4, 2011.
