Below is an example of a table with the computed column. I have also included a computed column that converts it to a normal date datatype.
DECLARE @dateTest TABLE 
	(	TextDate varchar(40), 
		RealDate AS CAST(SUBSTRING(TextDate,5,7)+RIGHT(TextDate,4) as date),
		FormattedDate AS UPPER(REPLACE(CONVERT(varchar(9),CAST(SUBSTRING(TextDate,5,7)+RIGHT(TextDate,4) as date),6),' ','-')) 
	)
INSERT @dateTest (TextDate)
VALUES ('Fri Oct 10 10:53:13 2008')

SELECT * FROM @dateTest

(DT_WSTR,4)YEAR(GETDATE()) + RIGHT("0" + (DT_WSTR,2)MONTH(GETDATE()), 2) +  RIGHT("0" + (DT_WSTR,2)DAY( GETDATE()), 2)

Please update appropriate for your use.

Thanks for the response. But the thing is source value is not in dateformat. Its in string format

the Column  CreationDate has the  source value is in this format "Fri Oct 10 10:53:13 2008" which is in csv file.

I want the destination value to be like  "10-OCT-08" which needs  to be populated in Oracle table.

I tried both the solutions but that's not working.
I tried using the following if i assume that all the value would be of same  number for each row in that column

(DT_DBTIMESTAMP)(SUBSTRING([date string], 1, 4) + "-" SUBSTRING([date string], 5, 2) + "-" +
SUBSTRING([date string], 7, 2))

But i am getting typecast error. What might be the problem.
Could you please help me in this regard.

Substring([date string],5,3) + "-" + Substring([date string]],9,2) + "-" + Right([date string],2)
