it assigns to dt end a date that is five years prior to the date in dtsomething

It subtracts five from the year portion then reconstitutes the date from the new year value and the same day and month

so basicly it returns the date five years earlier?

so for dtSomething = today (28/06/2013)

dtEnd would be  28/06/2008
