Reply with quote

I am trying to insert a new row into a DB2 table.
I want one of the columns to be a NULL. I am trying to do that through a REXX executable.

Code:

"INSERT INTO AGENT VALUES ( ?, ?, ?, ?)"

and then
I am populating variables AGENTIDA, DOBA, ADDRESSA to some values
CONTACTA=NULL inserts a 'NULL' in that column
CONTACTA="" inserts a row, but the column is not a NULL
Code:

"EXECSQL EXECUTE S2 USING :AGENTIDA, :DOBA, :ADDRESSA, :CONTACTA"


If I try doing
Code:

"INSERT INTO AGENT (AGENTID, DOB, ADDRESS) VALUES (?, ?, ?)"

and then
Code:

"EXECSQL EXECUTE S2 USING :AGENTIDA, :DOBA, :ADDRESSA"


I get an error in insert
Code:

SQLCODE -518 
SQLSTATE 07003


Can anyone guide me in this regard?

Thanks in advance.
