Yves,

How about something like this (you'll need a field "ResultFld" to see the
result):

on mouseUp
  breakpoint
  put fld "dates" into tDates
  put last word of the long date into thisYear
  put 1 into lineCounter
  put "" into retVal
  put thisYear into currYear
  repeat with x = (thisYear-9) to 1 step -10
    put "From " & x & " to " & currYear & ":" into tTemp
    put 0 into tCount
    repeat for each line y in tDates
      if y >= x then
        add 1 to tCount
      else
        exit repeat
      end if
    end repeat
    delete line 1 to tCount of tDates
    put tCount after tTemp
    put tTemp into line (the number of lines of retVal)+1 of retVal
    put x-1 into currYear
  end repeat
  put retVal into fld "ResultFld"
end mouseUp

-- Modify to suit your needs...
