I have a table that has a birthdate field inside of it.  The vast majority of these records are just the year (example:  "1975")  There are a few records that have an actual date stamp (example:  "04/04/1980")

Here is my issue.

I am running this through ETL.  I need to either trim the date to just have the year marker or add "01/01" to the existing years to standardize.  I have tried script components to append the 01/01 and I have tried data conversion and derived columns, none of which are working.  Is there something else I may be able to do to approach this?  

Thanks
