Default Date conversion

I'm wanting to convert a date to a related symbol string.

Example: 7/16/21 to "210716"

12/17/21 to "212217"
Note that when month has a single digit, a "0" must be added before it in the string.

Can't figure out how to do it using Excel functions. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

try:
=RIGHT(YEAR(A1),2)&TEXT(MONTH(A1),"00")& TEXT(DAY(A1),"00")

Perfect! Many thanks for your help, Klaus. If memory serves, you've always been helpful to me and I appreciate it.
