Sql server provides datetime function for extracting year and month from datetime field.

select year(datetimefield) AS YEAR, month(datetimefiled) AS MONTH FROM TABLE

but here performance may go down,
it is better to do have year and month field with your table having default values  year(datetimefield) and  month(datetimefiled).
