Barcode Date fields Formatting

I am modifying the standard Crystal packing slip report. This formula
BarcodeC39(TOTEXT({Shiphead.SHIPDATE})) displays as *10/029/02003*. The /0
is the extended 3 of 9 code for the date separator /. When I verify this
field with my scanner with extended code enabled it displays as shown above.
How can I format the field, so as not to display the 0 after the / ? I
started with this formula "*"+ToText({Shiphead.SHIPDATE})+ "*" which
displays as "10/29/2003* but doesn't verify at all.
