      For an entry box:

      Get Text (Var01;"Which year?";"Enter a year here:")


      For a menu:

      Menu (Var00;"Which Year?";{"2003";"2004";"2005"})
      Case (Var00;{1;2003;2;2004;3;2005};cancel)
      Label (cancel)
      Return
      ;
      Label (2003)
      Assign (Var01;"2003")
      Go (continue)
      ;
      Label (2004)
      Assign (Var01;"2004")
      Go (continue)
      ;
      Label (2005)
      Assign (Var01;"2005")
      Go (continue)
      ;
      Label (continue)

      Both put the year in Var01. Replace Var01 with GlobalVar01 if you want
      to use the value in another macro.
