## Considerations when using the NEXTYEAR function

The dates argument can be any of the following:

• A reference to a date/time column.
• A table expression that returns a single column of date/time values.
• A Boolean expression that defines a single-column table of date/time values.

The year_end_date parameter is a string literal of a date, in the same locale as the locale of the client where the workbook was created. The year portion of the date is ignored.
