format Date for columns inserted into Word Template for 'Generate Document' action

Jump to solution

In Nintex Workflow for Office 365, in action 'Generate Document' I want to insert date columns into my Word document template.  I insert the list column (which is already configured to show 'Date' rather than 'Date and time.') and when the PDF document is generated, it displays the date & time (12:00:00 AM for time).  How do I make it display Date only?

 

I tried some 'fn-formateDate' functions that were suggested but those did not translate anything, the words displayed instead of altering the date.

Wow, I must have forgotten about this one. Should I delete it?

Thanks. That solution is to use a Regular Expression action, to replace the time with blank. Use this in the Pattern field.
