Getting Error in BindingSource Filter?

I'm getting an error when I set my BindingSource Filter property to the following string.

                        strFilter = " YEAR(dateOfTran) = " & CInt(Trim(cmbYear.Text)) & " AND MONTH(dateOfTran) = " & GetMonthLiteral(0, cmbMonth.Text)

I get the Error Message:  "The expression contains undefined function call YEAR()". I created a SQL Query that used this string and ran it in SQL Server Management Studio and it ran fine. What am I missing. Here is the actual code below.

                        strFilter = " YEAR(dateOfTran) = " & CInt(Trim(cmbYear.Text)) & " AND MONTH(dateOfTran) = " & GetMonthLiteral(0, cmbMonth.Text)
                    bsTransactions.Filter = strFilter

Here is what the strFilter looks like after I run it through the Debugger:

    YEAR(dateOfTran) = 2013 AND MONTH(dateOfTran) = 8

you need to stick to this

you may want to add a new column year whicch will be year of dateOfTran and then filter based on that

I already read that MSDN topic. Plus, I did go ahead and add a Year AND a Month column since the query needed both values.
