What is meant by saying a variable has null values??
When we get null values for a record and when we try to display it what is expected???
Can we get this displayed in the sysout???

Null means nothing!

The only way to get NULL value from a record, you have to use Indicator variables.

You will get Junk Values...

When you'll see ur file in HEX Format....you'll find zeroes for NULL.
