PREVIOUS QUESTION

As a follow on to the above question I need to also check that something is NOT THIS YEAR, I've tried taking the lead from the above question where criteria MONTH(DATE()) allowed for a comparison of this month against the data and looking at something like NOT YEAR(DATE()) but this didn't work.

This bit does provide the year:
SVC_YEAR: Year(Format(Mid([SVC_DATE],5,2) & "/" & Mid([SVC_DATE],7,2) & "/" & Left([SVC_DATE],4),"mm/dd/yyyy"))

with this I get "DATA TYPE MISMATCH IN CRITERIA EXPRESSION"

WHERE (((Year(Format(Mid([SVC_DATE],5,2) & "/" & Mid([SVC_DATE],7,2) & "/" & Left([SVC_DATE],4),"mm/dd/yyyy")))<>Year(Date())));

You coudl simplify the calculated column (field) to:

SVC_YEAR: Val(Left([SVC_DATE],4)) 

Open in new window

then use the criteria

<>Year(date())

or edit the where clause to include:

Where  Val(Left([SVC_DATE],4)) <>  YEAR(DATE()) ...

Open in new window

Try  simplifying it like this (adding the xxxx to the end handles nulls):

SVC_YEAR: Left(SVC_DATE & "xxxx",4)  

And use as criteria (as cap1 suggested):  <> Year(Date())
