Chris, for update, you need the _SET_UPDATE_NULL_MAP_FIELD macro. The one you mentioned works with the output null map.

I think those macros are meant to be used with a typedef created by pragma mapinc with the nullflds option. The _type would be the typedef name, and the _field would the field name. It looks like the macros only support clearing the whole null map with _CLEAR_UPDATE_NULL_MAP, and then setting individual fields to '1' with _SET_UPDATE_NULL_MAP_FIELD.

Here's a test program I found in my library that updates file BMORRIS/JUNKF. It looks like the field names in my junk file were all 10A, and the first and third were defined ALWNULL. The program is blindly updating all the fields, and setting the third field NULL3 to be null.

main()
{
#pragma mapinc("nulls", "BMORRIS/JUNKF(REC)","nullflds")
#pragma mapinc("data", "BMORRIS/JUNKF(REC)","both")
#include "nulls"
#include "data"
BMORRIS_JUNKF_REC_both_t data;
_RFILE *rf;

rf = _Ropen("BMORRIS/JUNKF", "rr+ nullcap=Y");
_Rreadn (rf, &data, sizeof(data), __DFT);
_CLEAR_UPDATE_NULL_MAP(rf, BMORRIS_JUNKF_REC_nmap_t);
memcpy(&data, "null1 notnull2 null3 notnull4 ", 40);
_SET_UPDATE_NULL_MAP_FIELD(rf, BMORRIS_JUNKF_REC_nmap_t, NULL3);
_Rupdate (rf, &data, sizeof(data));
_Rclose (rf);
}
