The easiest way that I can think of on the top of my head is to use the other built-in system variables for day, month and year this way you can format the date any way you want without changing the date system variable. 

Want to learn RPA from scratch! Have a look at this video on RPA provided by Intellipaat:

Alternatively, Automation Anywhere bot store has a free metabot package called "Change Date and Time Format" that you can download. This has a DLL built into it called changeDateFormat that takes a "culture" as a variable, you can check the documentation i bet it has the format you’re looking for.
