HYYMDS is a DateTime format. AS such it is easily changed to another DateTime forma via simple equality. For NewDate/HMTDYYSa = HYYMDS_field ; produces May 19, 2016 10:00:00pm (your example - full month name) or NewDate/HMtDYYSa = HYYMDS_field ; produces May 19, 2016 10:00:00pm (your example - short month name)
You can also do this directly in a print column. The presumes that the HYYMDS format is the "Actual" format.
