# How to identify anniversaries next month?

CRV 11 - I have an anniversary report that runs on the 20th of every month showing anniversaries in the upcoming month (regardless of day) .
The December 20th report showed two employees; one with a hire date of 1/3/2011 (result was 6 yrs of service) and one with a hire date of 1/28/2013 (result was 4 yrs of service).  BOTH results are short one year and should be 7 and 5.  The formula I'm using is Year (currentdate) - Year({EMPLOYEE.DATE_HIRED}).  Any advice would be appreciated.

Your formula works for every month except the December run because of crossing the year boundary.

I can think of 2 solutions. The easy solution is to test for current month = 12 then add 1

``````If Month(CurrentDate) = 12 then
Year (currentdate) - Year({EMPLOYEE.DATE_HIRED} + 1
Else
Year (currentdate) - Year({EMPLOYEE.DATE_HIRED}
``````

The other will work depending on how you are selecting the date range.  If you are prompting for the date range you could use the date value from the parameter instead of current date.

Year({?StarDate}) - Year({EMPLOYEE.DATE_HIRED
