I think I am ready for about 3 inches of a good single malt! -- Content-Description: RE: Null or Blank From: Buck Calabro <Buck.Calabro@commsoft.net> Reply-To: firstname.lastname@example.org To: email@example.com Subject: RE: Null or Blank Date: Wed, 9 Jan 2002 12:25:49 -0500 X-Plaintext: Picked text/plain from multipart/alternative -- [ Picked text/plain from multipart/alternative ] >Yup, that x'00' is a null and you >will need to address it as >(is null | is not null) With the greatest of respect, the SQL concept of NULL is not the same as placing x'00' in a field. The confusion arises out of an unfortunate naming convention. SQL NULL is an attribute of the column, like size, type and text. SQL NULL is not related to the contents of the field, which can be other than x'00'. Likewise, placing x'00' in a null capable field means nothing to SQL. SQL NULL will be FALSE for that field. --buck _______________________________________________ This is the Midrange Systems Technical Discussion (MIDRANGE-L) mailing list To post a message email: MIDRANGE-L@midrange.com To subscribe, unsubscribe, or change list options, visit: http://lists.midrange.com/cgi-bin/listinfo/midrange-l or email: MIDRANGE-Lfirstname.lastname@example.org Before posting, please take a moment to review the archives at http://archive.midrange.com/midrange-l.
