ESPECIALLY the "not null" attribute?

Must I place a VALUE(custName, ' ') around each 2nd file field to force NOT NULLs?

I am trying to join OLDFILE with the CUST file, and add a few of the fields from the CUST file WHILE keeping the NOT NULL attribute of the CUST fields.


chgvar &sqlCmd ('create table NEWFILE as (' +
*tcat ' select OLDFILE.*, ' +
*tcat ' custName,' +
*tcat ' custAddr,' +
*tcat ' from OLDFILE ' +
*tcat ' left outer join OldFile ' +
*tcat ' on oldfile.custID = newfile.custID) with data ')
