Word Merge

When merging a word document with properties from pega is there a way to specify a format in the word document along with the field code? Or if I want a different format (like a certain date format) then I need to create a new property in Pega that holds this formatted value?

:I've read this documentation before and it doesn't help for my question.  Let me ask this way.

So when I insert this

{pega:reference propertyreference }

​into my word document and the property is a date property it comes out in word as 20170304 for example. I want a different format in word such as 03/04/2017. How do I do this? Sure I can create another property in Pega to convert the value but I don't want to do this. I want to specify the format within the word document instead of having to create all new properties and changing code in Pega.

So is there really no way to do what I need other than create new properties from within pega?
