Hi Dayalan,

I am going to respond here rather than our previous thread which I will close shortly (let me know if you run into problems with that and the case will re-open).

This will need to be done at the view level. I you use your year as a metric elsewhere, I would suggest dragging in another copy of that field, so you can have one of each. In 7.3 the field type can be set here:


Please let me know if this is not applicable to your version (this is slightly different for 7.1 and 2), or if you have any questions on implementation.
