Hard coding is bad, bad , bad. Very bad, okay? (see Avoiding Hard Coding of Group Names).
Here’s a quick and dirty way to have a drop down dialog which selects the “Year” and not be hard coded.
currentYear := @Year(@Now );
which results in a multip value list of (for this year) “2008” : “2009” : “2010”
and then make the default value
and, of course, you could easily extended this forward or back additional year values if needed.
