launch mapkey from parameter/relation?

Hi, I would like to know if it is possible to launch a mapkey from a relation. say if file_name =xxx activate mapkey aaa.
also in our drawing formats when we create a drawing we have the date in 2 places in two styles. one is dd/mm/yyyy the other is dd/mm/yy I would like to set the parameters up to auto fill this the problem i am running into is todays_date is left blank in the parameters so I can not get the value and change it for my other date parameter, if that makes since. thanks
