Subject External tables and null values
Author Milan Babuskov
Hi all,

I'm trying to copy data from one database to the other via external
tables. I have problem with null values.

I first insert rows from source database to external table. Then I try
to insert from external table to destination database, but all NULL
values are converted:

integers become zero
dates become 17.11.1858

Is this behaviour expected?

If so, how to overcome it?

P.S. I searched the newsgroups and google but couldn't find anything
about this.
