Formatting Merge Field
How can I format a merge field with a calculated value of 12/1/2012? I'd like to become December 2012.
If Date is the return type for your calculation field (or if this is a date field with an auto-entered calculation...), you can select the block of text that contains this merge field and use the data tab in the inspector to specify that date format.
The possible catch here is that if you have two date type merge fields inside the same block of layout text, both will get the same data format.
