How to validate the date in SSIS

Hello experts,

I am wondering in SSIS 2005, how we can check if the value of the date is valid or not.

I tried to use
isdate(mycol) =0? null : mycol
I used this in the divertcolumn box in expression, but id didn't work

I want something equivelant to this

another solution is that :
create a script component task , and inside the script check the date, and fill another column which contains validity of date.

note that there is no builtin function for checking IS a date valid in SSIS yet.
