I am using dot net and I want to create a dropdown list that contains the current year and the next ten years. I am not sure how to populate the table.  

Something like below which does not work.

    <asp:DropDownList ID="DropDownList1" runat="server">
                <asp:ListItem Value="=year(getdate())"></asp:ListItem>
                 <asp:ListItem Value="=year(getdate() + 1)"></asp:ListItem>
            </asp:DropDownList>

populate your DDL with codebehind :

 Dim intYear As Integer
    Dim intStart As Integer = DateTime.Now.Year
    Dim intEnd As Integer = DateTime.Now.Year + 10
 
    For intYear = intStart To intEnd
        DropDownList1.Items.Add(intYear.ToString())
    Next
