Hi guys,

I need to select highest number based on specific year.

Select max(num) from SomeTable where Date like '%2012%'

now this is not good since month 12 and day 20 in 2013 year will also respond to this query.

my date format is ddMMyyyy.

Any suggestions?

How about this:

If the column ends in yyyy:

Select max(num) from SomeTable where Date like '%2012'

Unfortunately in database date looks like this 2012-10-29 00:00:00.000.

I am using ddMMyyyy in VB.net, but in database is displayed differently.

If Date is a datetime field then why not just...

WHERE DATEPART(YY, Date) = 2012
