How to edit Event type date field in Word template merge?

I'm trying to create a Word 2010 template that prints an event date field, and I only want to print the month and day because we don't know the year.  I'm using ACT! Pro 2011.

 

Everything in my template seems to work, but I get a full date in the format mm/dd/yyyy.  What I want is Month day, for example, November 22.

 

I inserted the ACT! fields into the template.  If I toggle the field, the codes are

{ DOCVARIABLE [ACTFIELD]TBL_CONTACT.CUST_Birth2MrEvent_041809548 \* MERGEFORMAT }

 

If I leave it in that format, the output might be 2/6/2010.  What I really want is either 2/6 or February 6.

 

I've tried editing the field code by inserting \@ "MMMM d" before the \* MERGEFORMAT but it seems to have no effect.

 

I did some tests with true dates, like CREATEDATE and get the same result.

 

Suggestions?
