color code different year programs


Has anyone ever had 2 or 3 years worth of programs open in order to access client information or a particular input on a prior year and accidently input on the wrong year?  How about an option to color code each year so they will look different? For example the current year is a white interface and a past year is yellow, red etc.  

Any other thoughts or ideas?

Lock the prior year returns; that prevents entering/changing info.

I agree but a color enhancement would be also a great feature.  Other programs do have this feature. Why not give us the enhancement or option? There are times I prefer to not have a return locked if you are checking an input etc. Locking returns is one option.  Color coding another.
