fixed

What about using the keyword ALWNULL and DFT(*NULL)  for fields in the
physical file.

                This one is odd, but here we go.

                Our web guys developed a page to receive orders on the web.
We then use
                Datamirror to mirror the data to an AS/400 DB and the
process the orders.

                Here's the problem.  On fields where they didn't
specifically fill with a
                [null] value (using cold fusion I believe), the value is
mirrored to the
                As/400 as X'00'.

                Now, we don't want to have to translate all the data on the
as/400 simply
                because there are quite a few files and quite few fields
that this affects.
                (Hey, I didn't design the DB, they did..heheh..)  They claim
that fixing the
                program to fill in null values will take longer than
rewriting the program
                on their end.

                Has anyone had this problem with mirroring of any type?
It's really
                frustrating.  Or, is there a way to fix it on our end
without reading
                through all the files and checking each field?
