As I said in my private reply to your private message, default DZ is only for
XyWrite 4 and later.
In Xy3 the default date format is invariable (I believe it's Mmmm d, yyy[y]),
so it's necessary to add a date mask to the DA command every time:
The final "y" in the year mask can be omitted; it still produces a 4-digit year.
For speed, you can save the embedded command <> (i.e., the
*result* produced by the command) to a Save/Get key or assign the command via
the KBD file:
