Define 'not liking it', preferably with whatever error message is returned when the above is executed.

The syntax select year(datetime_column_name) from table_name is correct, as the below code returns '2014' on my SQL 2008 box.
SELECT YEAR(GETDATE())

Open in new window

If you're trying to concatenate it, be sure to cast it to varchar as well:

select cast(year(UPDATE_DATE) as varchar(4)) + ...
from x
