using current year in querystring

using current year in querystring

using current year in querystring

(OP)
Hi,

I have this query string at the moment

CODE

<a class="nav" href="OTIF_YearCharts.asp?aYear=2015" target="cpOTIF_Main" >Charta OTIF 2015</a> 
I would like to change it so that it would use the current year so that I do not have to change it at the start of each year. I have tried

CODE

<a class="nav" href="OTIF_YearCharts.asp?aYear=Year()" target="cpOTIF_Main" >Charta OTIF 2014</a> 
But that does not work

Does anyone have any ideas please

Regards

Paul

RE: using current year in querystring

try:

Year(Date)

CODE

<a class="nav" href="OTIF_YearCharts.asp?aYear=Year(Date)" target="cpOTIF_Main" >Charta OTIF 2014</a>
