I have a Microsoft Access query where I am trying to update the "yyyy" "2012" to "2013".  Here is the Select query:
SELECT Format([MyDate],"mmyyyy") AS Expr1
FROM Company_Data
WHERE (((Format([MyDate],"mmyyyy"))="012012"));

I'm not sure I understand the question.  Wouldn't  you just change it to:
SELECT Format([MyDate],"mmyyyy") AS Expr1
FROM Company_Data
WHERE (((Format([MyDate],"mmyyyy"))="012013"));

Or did you want a query to update the dates in your table that are in 2012 to 2013?

Try this

Update  Emp_Detail

set Emp_Detail.[JoiningDate] = CDate( Format(Emp_Detail.[JoiningDate], "MM/DD/") & "2013" )

where year(Emp_Detail.[JoiningDate]) = 2005



In your case for year
Update  Company_Data

set [MyDate] = CDate( Format([MyDate], "MM/DD/") & "2013" )

where year([MyDate]) = 2012

if the field is date, you just want to add 1 year:

dateadd("year", 1, your_date_field)

and eventually format from there.
if it's not datetime, it would be about time to think about getting that changed ..

If your field is stored as TEXT (not optimal), you can use the following:

Select Query:
SELECT Replace([MyDate], "2012", "2013")
FROM Company_Data
WHERE Right([MyDate],4) = "2012"

Open in new window


Update query:
UPDATE Company_Data
SET [MyDate] = Replace([MyDate], "2012", "2013")
WHERE Right([MyDate],4) = "2012"

Open in new window

angelIII's solution should do what you want, although I think the syntax for year interval is "yyyy" -
dateadd("yyyy", 1, your_date_field)
