    Hi Dan,

    You may appreciate a more simple approach to get the Date Generated for your formatted output:

    You can create a formula field (with type of Text) in Vault on the object type in question which uses a formula (with type of Text) to display "today". The field does not need to be on a page layout. You can then reference the field in your Formatted Output template and be guaranteed a predictable behavior. The added benefit here is that you get full control on the formatting of whatever Today is, and you can use the system's Today or Today as per the timezone of the user running the report.

    Best Regards,
