I am trying to format a date field.  I am trying to get the year.  I have tried:

Year(date)
Int(Year(date))

but the result is always 2,009.00

Any ideas?

You can format the field using custom formatting

Put the formula on the report
Right Click the field
Click FORMAT FIELD
Select the NUMBER tab
CLick CUSTOMIZE
Choose rounding - 1
Choose decimals - 1
Turn off the thousands separator

Another way is to convert it to a string in the formula

CStr(Year(date),0,'')

or

ToText(Year(date),0,'')
