From what I understand, formatting dates in SSIS requires the concatenation of date parts. I suspect doing the date math in SSIS is a bit more difficult.

With that in mind, I'd do this in T-SQL query. Let us know if that'll fill your need.

My concern is, why do you want to do #1 at all? If it's to store formatted dates in a table, be advised that's one of the worst practices of all.

"RBAR is pronounced "ree-bar" and is a "Modenism" for "Row-By-Agonizing-Row".

First step towards the paradigm shift of writing Set Based code:
Stop thinking about what you want to do to a row... think, instead, of what you want to do to a column."
