Something like NOT NULL but not filled either <g>. In VFP we represent it
with {} or { / / }

Actually what happens is when a date is optional like: Please enter you
birth date (optional)? People may not want to reveal the date and would
like to keep it empty. Now filling this to a date however obscure like
01/01/1245 will have problem when you would like to know about filled birth

Hasn't anybody come across situations like above, if so please let me know
how they have handles it in the past.
