Issue with Null Indicator/ db2

Postby rlimkar » Mon Mar 21, 2011 7:43 pm

Hi Friends,
The null indicator for the decimal columns of the table is not getting set though those column contains the value as NULL.
I had fired an sql in SPUFI by adding where clause as column name is null and it shows the result.
But in the program when I displyaed the value for the field and it is coming as 000 (zeroes). :o and thats why null indicator is not getting set but not able to understand from where it is getting zeros??

Not able to identify what is the issue?
Looking forward to get some replies...

Thanks in anticipation.

Note : Verfied the sql, data type, nullable column and which is fine. Just to let u all know I am using it in multirow fetch cursor.

"column name is null"? I wouldn't have thought that is possible.

You should not fire sql's in SPUFI, as that will severely damage the SQL.

Perhaps your column has a default value?
The problem I have is that people can explain things quickly but I can only comprehend slowly.

1) did it work in version 8?
2) look at the doumentation for version 9 to see what the changes are. Do any of them look as though they could cause this?

Clue 1: DB2 is IBM.
Clue 2: IBM has its manuals available online.
Clue 3: The forum has loads of topics mentionong how to get to the manuals
If all else fails...
Clue 4: Google
