How to format date in template as "February 29, 2008"

I have the feeling this was addressed (years ago?), but I can't find anything here or in the manual. I wish to change the "long date" format in correspondence to what is used by 99.9% of all businesses when writing in English and what is often abbreviated as MMMM D, YEAR: e.g., "February 29, 2008" -- NOT "Friday, February 29, 2008" as ACT!2008's long date formate insists on. I also do not want "Saturday, March 01, 2008"; just "March 1, 2008". Is there a way to do this?

That is an insert command in Word. Open the template for editing and highlight the date and then go to Insert | Date Time and choose the format you want.

Roy, thanks for the reply, but I was referring to the Act Word Processor -- and should have been clearer about that. Mike, score another one for GL Computing. That fixed it -- and my apologies to ACT! for my snarkiness.
