Quite frankly,. I am surprised that MONTH worked !!

MONTH and YEAR are not the month and year. These are constant values which are used by the setter and getters to determine what you want. Basically, when you pass MONTH to the getter, it will return the month, and when you pass YEAR to the getter, it will return the year.

Please do not cross-post the same question in multiple forums. It wastes people's time when multiple redundant conversations take place. Please read this for more information.
