Remove spaces from a merge field



I have a merge field which is a date in the format 01 04 2009, I would like
to print this onto a form with out the spaces 01042009. Does anyone know if
it is possible to format the merge field to not print spaces. Or do you know
of a font that does recognise the space character?

You can add a formatting switch: \@ ddMMyyyy or \@MMddyyyy, as appropriate.
