Lex,

As I remember, Microsoft Visual Basic makes a distinction like this:
IsEmpty and IsNull ??
And as we all know Bill must be a smart guy (looking at his revenues) so
I suppose this sais enough..

Lex de Haan:

OK, there we go :-)

there is no such thing as a NULL numeric, or a NULL string, or a NULL date
-- and also, NULL is *not* the same as empty.
