    Year(ToDate([Date Created])) = numeric field

    As it is based on date created it won't change when the year changes to 2019, correct?

    Hi Raj,

    Most likely you are getting that error message because you don't have parenthesis around the field name to show that you want the year function to effect it. I would suggest trying

    Year(ToDate([Date Created])) 
    If you do then that formula field will reflect the year that the record was created and will not change. You would also want to make sure it will match the field type that you are using. Are you attempting to put it into a formula date or formula numeric?

    The formula reflects the year value in the [Date Created] field. Since the value in [Date Created] never changes, the formula will never change as it mirrors the year in [Date Created].
