Hello,

I am trying to use a Filter on a view that compares a Choice field value to a calculated value.  The Choice field value is a list of years:
2015, 016, 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020, etc.  In the Filter section here is the selection criteria under Show items only when the following is true:
  --  Show the items when column:
  --  Year (indexed)
  --  is equal to
  --  text(year([Today]),"0000")

There is nothing else selected below this option on the Edit View page in SharePoint.

It should be returning all documents that have the value of 2017 in the Year (indexed) column, but the document library is blank.

Thank you in advance for your assistance.
