# Get year portion of the date

trying to get just the 2 digit year portion o fthe date

Below is my code.

If the month is greater than 9 i need to go to the next year 2011 but i just want the 11 part, if it is less than 9 i want to stay witht eh current fical year.

How can i just get the 2 digit year portion.

``````Private Function GenerateAutoNumber(ByVal VDATE As Date, ByVal currentNumber As String) As String
Dim CurrMonth As String = DateTime.Now.ToString("MM")
Dim Curryear As Double = Convert.ToDouble(currentNumber.Substring(0, 2))
Dim CurrJulian As String = Convert.ToDouble(currentNumber.Substring(3, currentNumber.Length - 7))
Dim TodayJulian As String = DateTime.Now.DayOfYear.ToString
Dim AcnYear As DateTime
Dim AcnJulian As String
Dim Incriment As String

If CurrMonth > "9" Then
Response.Write(AcnYear)
Response.End()
Else
Response.Write(DateTime.Now.ToString)
Response.End()
End If

Dim autoNumber As Double = Convert.ToDouble(currentNumber.Substring(7, currentNumber.Length - 7))

Dim strNumber As String = (autoNumber + 1).ToString("000")

Return Year(VDATE).ToString.Substring(2) & "-" & VDATE.DayOfYear.ToString("000") & "-" & strNumber.Substring(0, strNumber.Length)
End Function

I have tried that and what i get in a response.write is
15/2011 9:57:41 AM

it looks like it just eliminates the 09 instead of getting the 11 in 2011.

Dim mYear as integer
If Val(Mid(Format(Now(),"MM/dd/yyyy"), 1, 2)) > 9 Then
mYear = Val(Mid(Format(Now(),"MM/dd/yyyy"), 7, 4)) + 1
EndIf
mYear = Mid(Str(mYear), 3, 2)

Why don't you just add 3 months to the current date, and then get the year.

<%
%>

and if you just want the last 2 numbers: subtract 2000:

<%
Dim YourWantedYear As Integer = Year(DateAdd("m", 3, Now())) - 2000
%>

(I know I use VBScript functions, they work in vb.net as well)

You are missing the part when the month is exactly 9.
