Max doesn’t like integers to have a zero in front of them. Thus, as an integer, 04 always gets converted to 4. The only way to do it, is to convert the integer to a symbol "04". Since both the months and the dates can have a zero in front of them, you need to be able to fix both. This example uses [combine] to make a symbol with a leading zero out of integers lower than 10, and then uses another combine to string them all together in the mmddyyyy format you want.

For an even simpler version, replace the [if] objects with [split 1 9]. Hook ’em up the same way.
