How to control date formatting on set variable script step

I'm using the set variable script step to insert a date into a global field. That date is inserted into a calculated text field that will be sent as an email.


For the sake of the email, I want recipients to see the day and date. So I formatted the date field accordingly.


When the date is inserted into the text field, it shows as MM/DD/YYYY (which is also what you see if you click in the field, even though the formatting shows as Day, Date, Year on the layout).


Is there any way to make sure that the formatting in the calculated text field retains the formatting of the date field?
