Subj:   Re: SQL Functions in MLOAD Script..
From:   Michael Larkins


TRIM is an SQL function in all databases. MLOAD does not do SQL in the .IMPORT. It does SQL in the .DML sections. From your example it looks as if you are checking for a zero length character value. I do not believe there is such a thing in a character data field in a file defined as TEXT. Should it not be a ' ' in your text data? It is not defined as VARTEXT so your column should be 10 bytes long. Otherwise use you might benefit from using the NULLIF on the .FIELD.
