Use the Format() function to format the dates and use the CDate to convert the field to a date if not stoed as date datatype:
Format(Cdate(Fields!DateField.Value),"MM/dd/yyyy" )
Hope this helps.

This is a textbox that does not pull from a field. (it is a custom report header).
I tried =(fromat(datestring(), "mm/dd/yyyy")) but that doesnt work. WHat do i need to modify?

So you are using datestring() function to get the date. Try this:
Cstr(Format(Cdate(Datestring()),"MM/dd/yyyy" ) )
