For Day and Month only, the following programmable point needs to be configured:

10 XFlo = FLOAT ( MONTH )
20 XFlo = XFlo / 100.000
30 YFlo = FLOAT ( DAY )
40 RETURN VIA TEXT 449 VALUE XFlo + YFlo

The date will be displayed in the dd.mm format.

Shorttext will need to be created as below:

%2.2f and will be displayed as 17.07

or

Date:%2.2f and will be displayed as Date:17.07

40 YFlo = YFlo * 10000.0
50 ZFlo = FLOAT ( YEAR )
60 RETURN VIA TEXT 449 VALUE XFlo + YFlo + ZFlo
