How to pass blank date to output

Input and output field is string(50), its a date field, but uses string type.

 

In my input data, blanks are coming in this date field and it needs to be passed to output.

 

I have used below code in tMap but it didn't worked. Please help to resolve this issue.

 

row2.DiagnosisActivityStartDate == "" ? "" : TalendDate.formatDate("MM-dd-yyyy",TalendDate.parseDate("yyyy-MM-dd",row2.DiagnosisActivityStartDate))
