Our system has Spufi/QMF but not File-Aid DB2. Was asked the following interview questions wanted to share and see if somebody has the answer (preferably screenshot) -

1) How to see in File-Aid DB2 if column is NULL or not, does it hold any special value or does it appear in different color?

2) The same question on primary key?

NULL ENTRY Specify the character that, when entered, sets a column to null.
NULL DISPLAY Specify the character that appears for null columns.
SPACES IMPLY NULL Specify ON to have spaces imply nulls for character columns.
