Format quick parts with custom date?

I've been trying to format quick parts with a custom date but don't think this is possible?


The date is taken from a SharePoint date column and displayed as "23/02/2021"

How can I get the flow to format the date in this format - "23 February 2021" ?

I've tried putting in "formatDateTime('DateLetterCreated', 'dd/MM/yyyy hh:mm tt')"

This however doesn't work as now the field it tries to update the content of a document with is not a SharePoint field.
Somehow the date field in SharePoint needs to be conditionally formatted in SharePoint first.


It doesn't actually need to be a date field as the data is being imported from Excel on another flow. So can be plain text if that better?

Hi @ChristianAbata 


I've tried this however its still displaying in the native format:

I want it to display as [DAY] [Month] [YEAR] with no commas.
Rather than displaying as 24/02/2021.



The formula below should do:

formatDateTime('DateLetterCreated''dd MMMM yyyy')

You can also check the page below about all you can do with formatDateTime:

Hope it helps!
