ODI Loading Empty Strings from Flat File as Whitespace Instead of NULL (Doc ID 2759160.1)

Last updated on APRIL 06, 2021

Applies to:

Oracle Data Integrator - Version 12.2.1.4.200618 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

After upgrading Oracle Data Integrator (ODI) 12.1.3.0 to 12.2.1.4, flat files that contain a field that has a blank value, such as an empty string, are resulting in whitespace being inserted into the target instead of the previous behavior of inserting NULL.
