>>How will a Null field be displayed with the new support??
Will it show blank, as zeros, or whatever value is in the field??


I have to believe that it will display as whatever value is in the field.  The
null flag is a separate entity on the database, and the display file has no way
of "seeing" that flag.  So, if there's whatever value is there it will display
unless a) you've taken steps to prevent it's display within the RPG program or
b) it contains a known value (such as 01/01/0001 that you can use MAPVAL to map
it to blanks on the screen.
