SSRS is a flexible platform for quickly and easily deploying reports. A handy set of functions is the inbuilt time handling. In this post I’ll give a quick overview of the options you have available for working with Date and Time values in SSRS, especially when it comes to getting the current year.
To get the year portion of the current date in SSRS you can use the two Common Functions: Year() and Now()
Below is how you would put the Year and Now functions together, for example to populate the default value of a parameter with the current year:
You also have functions such as Month() and Day() available, as well as time related functions such as Hour(), Minute() and Second().
If you want to display a human-friendly date, then you can also use the functions MonthName(), and WeekdayName(). All of these are fairly self-explanatory in SSRS, but are useful to know nonetheless.
