Ideal way would be to generate year in script. But it has limitation. It will not work if user selects any Date1 & Date2 values. For eg. Date1 value of ID=1 & Date2 of ID=2. Both Date selection should be for same ID 

Data:
load ID,
     Date1,
     Date2
FROM Source;

Final:
LOAD *,
year(YearStart(Date1,IterNo()-1)) as Year
Resident Data
While yearStart(Date1,IterNo()-1)<= YearEnd(Date2);

DROP Table Data;

Is it static date reference or you have fields like Date1 & Date2 and you select dates from there?

Conceptually:  YEAR(Date2) - YEAR(Date1)

Example: =YEAR('4/1/2020') - YEAR('4/1/2017'), which returns 3.  Or are you expecting four?

You may need to repalce the Date1/2 with variables, if those are not static.

@Tanalex I do not want the year difference b/w 2 dates..I want to show the years that fall between 2 dates.

Create two variable as below on frond end

vMinYear
=year(min(Date1))

vMaxYear
=year(max(Date2))

 

then you can create below expression in filter

=ValueLoop(vMinYear,vMaxYear, 1)

ID 1 = 3 year difference

ID2 = 2 Year difference

Look at adding the logic that is best, in the load script.  HTH
