Joel,

You could try to encapsulate it in a COALESCE:

COALESCE(max(case when client_act = ''S'' then ''S'' else '' '' end), " ')
as Field_1

Field_1 is null-capable.

Is it possible to run this SELECT and create Field_1 which does NOT allow
nulls?

Or do I have to Create the table first with "Not Null" for the field?

I was hoping to do something like:

chgvar &sqlCmd ('select zoned(client_n,6,0) as client_n , max(case when
client_act = ''S'' then ''S'' else '' '' end) as Field_1 NOT NULL from
clientact group by client_n order by client_n')

^^^^^^^^

But this doesn't work.
