The Year function returns an integer representing the year component of a specified date and time.

Syntax

Year(date, \[timezone\])

Function arguments:

  • date (required) - the date or column containing date values from which the year component is extracted
  • timezone (optional) - the IANA time zone (e.g., “America/Los_Angeles”) to convert the date value to before extracting the year component

📘

When the timezone argument is omitted, the input date is evaluated in UTC time.

Example

Year(Date("2007-08-14"))

Extracts the year component from the specified date (August 14, 2007) and returns 2007 to represent the year.
