    Really, I think the best way would be like you do in excel or a programming language where you are able to format it however you want. In the Python Date.stroftime() function passing the format as '%Y%m%d' gives OP what he asked for, or passing '%Y-%m-%d' or '%Y/%m/%d' gives @TrifactaScott what he wanted. Rather than have to think of every possible combination just let us put in whatever we want. See here for guide:
