Need to change date format in QR Code report

I have a customer requiring QR Codes for their container labels. I have been able to generate the QR Code without issue using the Native Barcode Generator for Crystal Reports. The customer does not like the format of the date read in the barcode. My question is how to format the data being read by the Barcode Generator so it outputs the date in yyyy-mm-dd. My data to encode formula looks like this.... DataToEncode = ({ITMBPC.ITMREF_0}&" ,"&{MFGITMTRK.MFGNUM_0}&" ,"&"Eliquitech"&" ,"&{STOLOT.SHLDAT_0}&" ,"&{YSPECGRAVJUU.ASW_0} ) I need to format STOLOT.SHLDAT_0 to remove the time and only display date as yyyy-mm-dd.

Operating System: Server 2016

Application: Crystal Reports

Brant, thank you for your help! The formula you provided worked with one exception. I had to format the date as yyyy,MM,dd. When using all caps it only returned the month. It looked like YYYY,07,dd when reading the q code. Once changed, I received 2021-07-14 which is the format I needed.
