We are unable to process a null value to a TextArea datatype activity field through the ASSIGN functionality in ActionSet. It does not overwrite and leaves the existing string in the field. This scenario occurs when the user decides to no longer want text in the field. The current workaround is to use a space character to make the field look empty to the user but the database saves the space.

Blank value is correctly assigned to a TextArea when triggered.

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Open transaction details with a TextArea
2. Add text to the TextArea
3. Trigger an OnChange event to null the text in the TextArea
4. The text will still be there even after triggering the event
