Hi,

As you know, when a column in a table is nullable, when we unload this column, the unload utility will append an extra 'null indicator' next to the column in the unload file.

But I don't want this 'null indicator' in the unload file and also I don't want to change this column to NOT NULL. Is there any simple way to accomplish this?

Thanks!!
