Unparseable date error

I am getting "Unparseable date" error by using the below code.

 

"".equals(ColName) || ColName == null ? "" : TalendDate.formatDate("yyyy-MM-dd",TalendDate.parseDate("MM-dd-yyyy","ColName"))

 

Input is "Date" type, i am converting it to String type. I am also trying to replace null with blank values

Yes Manohar, it didnt work. 

 

Also, the output table should store the date in "yyyy-mm-dd" format.

Re: Unparseable date error
