    extracting year from date using instr or mid

    hello,
    I have a date field in database. I have to extract it from the database, convert it into a string using Str function and then get the year out of that string. The format for storing is mm/dd/yyyy.
    Please help in formulating a logic.
    THanks!!!!

    Why not just use the Year function on the retrieved Date value?
