Create a Calendar Event in Outlook Web using KM User Input and Variables

I thought this would be fairly straightforward, but I'm getting stuck in Outlook - I can't get it to accept the date as text. Macro allows me to paste the formatted date into the Outlook date field, but Outlook won't accept and defaults to a calendar where I need to point and select the date.

I know it seems like simply creating a new event in Outlook would be much simpler, but I need this part of the macro to build on. Eventually the macro will be used to create identical events in separate calendars on separate calendar servers. Again, forwarding the event or invite, will not work for these instances.
