Access: Year Function


In Access, the Year function returns an integer between 100 and 9999, inclusive, that represents the year of a date argument.

The syntax for the Year function is:

Year ( date )

The required time argument is any numeric or string expression, that can represent a date. If number is Null, this function returns a Null.


Year (#05/05/1985#)      returns 1985
Year (#17/07/2005#)      returns 2005

VBA Code

Dim MyYear As Integer 
MyYear = Year(#04/12/1997#)

This example uses the Year function to obtain the year from a specified date. Now the MyYear  variable would contain the value of 1997.

SQL query

You can also use the Year function in a query.

SELECT Year(#14/02/2005#) AS Expr1
FROM Orders

If you'd like to see how it works, enter SQL statement and press Execute
