I have a text (varchar) custom field c_call, that I need to assign a string that includes the textual date taken from another custom field in the record, c_callDate, which is of type dateTime (timestamp).  This occurs in an Update Record action in a workflow.  How can I implement the conversion from timestamp to text?  In the Update Record assignment, I tried setting the Call (text) field to

date('M j, Y', {c_callDate})

but this doesn't work.  Any suggestions?
