CRM Mail Merge - break apart date for contract

CRM Mail Merge - break apart date for contract

I have a date stored in CRM for a vendor, which I need to break into separate fields in the contract. The field is called «Contacts.Contract Date» which appears as MM/DD/YYYY

I need it to appear on a line of the contract as: 

Effective this     <<DD>>    day of        <<MMMM>>       , 20     <<YY>>      (and retroactive to the first day of...

I tried creating a new date field with the formatting changed to DD, which seems to appear alright on the setup, but when merged it always shows the whole date. 

Is there a formula I should use instead? If I was writing this in excel, I would just use =text(«Contacts.Contract Date»,"DD") and be done, but I'm not sure how to do that here. 

Any advice or maybe direction to a resource that would help?

                I'd like to pull new leads from the CRM system, into Creator, on a daily basis. Is this possible?   Yes, it is possible. Zoho Creator and Zoho CRM are integrated with each other, enabling you to synchronize data between them. This is done by fetching records from CRM into a Zoho Creator form. In order to achieve this, you'll have to configure a workflow alert in Zoho CRM.  For instance, you can maintain the lead details in CRM on a separate form in Zoho Creator by fetching the details automatically
