Hi,
As I can see as a bit unusual you use Varchar datatype for OrderDate.
Anyway, if this is OK for you, select is very simple and should looks like:

SQL> select * from orders where orderdate like'%2001';

      O_ID
----------
ORDERNAME
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
ORDERDATE
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
         3
order3
9/9/2001

Also you can create OrderDate varchar(255) -> OrderDate date
It will give you more manipulation possibility...
Now I will create another table orders_chng with same data and similar structure (will use date instead of varchar) and do select:

SQL> create table orders_chng as select O_ID,ORDERNAME,to_date(ORDERDATE,'dd/mm/yyyy') as ORDERDATE from orders;

Table created.

SQL> select * from orders_chng where to_char(orderdate,'YYYY')='2001';

      O_ID
----------
ORDERNAME
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
ORDERDAT
--------
         3
order3
09.09.01
1

And changed table structure is:

SQL> desc orders_chng
 Name                                      Null?    Type
 ----------------------------------------- -------- ----------------------------
 O_ID                                      NOT NULL NUMBER(38)
 ORDERNAME                                 NOT NULL VARCHAR2(255)
 ORDERDATE                                          DATE

date manipulations and output:

 SQL> select ORDERNAME, to_char(ORDERDATE,'DD-MM-YY HH24:MI') formated from orders_chng;

ORDERNAME            FORMATED
-------------------- --------------
order1               29-05-00 00:00
order2               07-06-00 00:00
order3               09-09-01 00:00
order4               22-03-02 00:00





SQL> select ORDERNAME, to_char(ORDERDATE,'IW') calendar_week from orders_chng;

ORDERNAME            CA
-------------------- --
order1               22
order2               23
order3               36
order4               12

Or just get orders from some specific years:

SQL>  select ORDERNAME from orders_chng where to_char(orderdate,'YYYY') in ('2000','2002');

ORDERNAME
--------------------
order2
order4

I did my example on real Oracle DB, anyway sqlfiddle.com works fine if you select oracle 11gR2 from menu
and create table with following create table statement:

CREATE TABLE Orders
(
O_Id int NOT NULL PRIMARY KEY,
OrderName varchar(255) NOT NULL,
OrderDate date);
1

Also inserts must looks like:

insert into Orders values ('1','order1',to_date('29/05/2000','dd/mm/yyyy'));
insert into Orders values ('2','order2',to_date('7/6/2000','dd/mm/yyyy'));
insert into Orders values ('3','order3',to_date('9/9/2001','dd/mm/yyyy'));
insert into Orders values ('4','order4',to_date('22/3/2002','dd/mm/yyyy'));
commit;

Do not forget to commit once when running in oracle otherwise your transaction will remains open and visible only in your session ;)
