CONNECT: special char for NULLs

    XMLWordPrintable

    Details

      Description

      As far as I understand, there is no way to tell CONNECT that a special character in a file represents NULL.

      Please, take a look at this example. It's an open dataset from Italian government, and the same format is used for several other datasets:
      http://www.dati.salute.gov.it/imgs/C_17_dataset_7_download_itemDownload0_upFile.CSV

      The column DATAFINEVALIDITA is a DDMMYYYY date, and '-' represents a NULL value.

      If I may suggest, a new column option would be a great solution:

      col_name DATE null_value = '-',
