Null is being preserved...

A null in Excel is an empty or blank cell, which is what you're seeing.

You could replace the NULLs with the string 'NULL' but I wouldn't recommend
doing so as now Excel with see the cell as not null.

I tried Google and the IBM site but couldn't find an answer.

I run a query that results in NULL values. When I try to save the results
to a spreadsheet (using Save As on the context menu) the columns that
contained NULLs in the results show as blanks in the Excel spreadsheet.

I've tried changing the values for nulls in Edit->Preferences->Results Tab
to NULL, (NULL), <NULL> but these appear to only change what is displayed
on the results pane.

Does anyone know what needs to be changed so that when a NULL is
encountered in the results and then I save the results to Excel the NULL is
preserved (or at least not blank).

Any advise would be appreciated,
