Subject FB & VFP6 How to store empty date
Author Namit Nathwani
Hi all

I am using FireBird as a backend for VFP6, via remote views. I have a
couple of date fields in the table. When I try to save a record in the
view I get the following error:

Connectivity error: Dynamic SQL Error
SQL error code = -303
conversion error from string '"'

This error goes away when I fill in the date fields. Anyway that FB will
accept blank dates (not NULL please I have had a tough time with it in VFP).
