Basically, I want two things:  One capture two pieces of
information (Name and date) and second, insert both variable

MM/DD/YYYY format.
For Variables you can easily insert input fields or input lists
into a template. They will popup automatically when you create a
new document from this template.

Rethink the need of reformatting the date variable, because you
will need macro coding then. What about asking for day, month,
year independently?


If you are looking to create the document creation date, will it suffice to:

Insert > Fields > Other > DocInfo > Created

And then you can insert the Date and / or Time. I think that this is the date that the document was created from the template, and then, you need not prompt the user.
