And, as a "stylistic" suggestion, don't use a separate field for

that you've created a new classs of issue for yourself by doing this, 
keeping two fields in step.

In general it's best to store basic data and calculate subsidiary 
data from it, don't store subsidiary data.

One small step for mankind...

The function is Year(name) = year. For best results store the date in 
yyyy-mm-dd format,

Typical use is

Select    column list
From      table list
Where    Year(column) = yyyy AND month = mm

There are other date/time functions available.
