Meta Date YAML matter code bad help?

I am using TEMPLATER and created a DAILY NOTE Template that auto generates YAML META Data at the top. BUT

YAMLE Auto date creation.

The code is below
However it is not generating the date automatically and I have to select it and do an CTRL +ALT +D to correct it.

Can someone tell me what is wrong with the code? Am I missing a space or something?

Date <% (“MM-DD-YYYY”) %>
Type Daily Note

Your template is missing colons, for starters:

Date: <% ("MM-DD-YYYY") %>
Type: Daily Note

And I would strongly suggest using the "YYYY-MM-DD" format if you intend to use that date in queries or similar later on. That is the format which will be recognised as a date by various plugins.
