RE: Getting the last 5 years automatically throug where clausile

From what you've described, you can use the Dialogue Manager to calculate the starting year of your 5 year span.
The code would look something like this:

CODE

-SET &THISYEAR =  &DATEYY;
-SET &STARTYR = &DATEYY - 4;
-TYPE &THISYEAR &STARTYR

The -TYPE was to show what values were set. Then, in your request, you might code:

CODE

WHERE YEAR FROM &STARTYR TO &THISYEAR
