Thank You John. 

I put =Year(Date()) in the Default value of the field on the table and put Long Integer for the Field size and it worked. 

Thank You for your help over all these years.

Jim-

Sometimes referencing an earlier calculated column alias in a query works, and sometimes it doesn't.  The SELECT part should be:

SELECT Date() As CurrentDate, Year(Date()) As CurrentYear

I just discovered something odd about this issue. I am taking this database over for someone that retired and there is a macro that has a delete query and then an append query that appends to a table. the SQL is below. Apparently the current year needs to be a number somewhere down the line for some reason or another. I have not gone that deep in the database yet. 

In the macro

Delete Query
the comment in the macro states the following
    deletes the LU table (LU_CurrentDateYear) of current date and current year field (this is so we don't have the date problem of coming in as text (Cdate thing)

DELETE LU_CurrentDateYear.*
FROM LU_CurrentDateYear;

Append query
the comment in the macro is
 populates the LU table (LU_CurrentDateYear) with today's date and the year part of that

INSERT INTO LU_CurrentDateYear ( CurrentDate, CurrentYear )
SELECT Date() AS CurrentDate, DatePart("yyyy",[CurrentDate]) AS CurrentYear;

 LU_CurrentDateYear table

the CurrentYear field has the following properties
Data Type: Number
Field Size: Long Integer

Hi all,

I am trying to make a field in a table to have a default value of the current year. I have tried a lot of variations like =Year(Now()) but I am getting 1905. 

Why is this happening?

Thank You

Jim Wagner
