Please look at this and let me know if it is close to what you are looking for. If not, I have done other iterations of this for other clients. Let me know and I will be happy to share them.
yes that's it.
I found another way (much less elegant) is to use the Title and display page name which as it turns out - the date I looked for.
So then I inserted an annotation and use <page name> and it appears to be the same as yours (?).
I appreciate your help.
