All,

I am using a LEFT OUTER JOIN to get all records in the ~left~ file ­
regardless of a record existing in the ~right~ file. It works well, apart
from one thing.

The field I need from the ~right~ file is being filled with NULL when there
is no record there. I really would like blanks in that field rather than
NULL.

How do I do that?

Thanks in advance,
Trevor
