Part Number B10339-02
The YYOF function returns an INTEGER in the range of 1000 to 9999, giving the year in which a specified date falls. The result returned by YYOF has the same dimensions as the specified date expression.
An expression that has the DATE data type, or a text expression that specifies a date. See"TEXT-to-DATE Conversion".
In place of a date expression, you can specify a text expression that has values that conform to a valid input style for dates. YYOF automatically converts the values of the text expression to DATE values, using the current setting of the DATEORDER option to resolve any ambiguity.
When the COMMAS option is set to YES when you display the value returned by YYOF, the year is displayed with a comma separating the thousands (for example,
1,996). To avoid this, you can set the COMMAS option to
NO before displaying the year.
