1. Create or update Items with API Call: ego_item_pub.process_item
2. Review segments.
3. Find segment2 through segment20 have chr(0) when NULL is the expected entry for these segments.
After Items are updated / created with this corruption null out the values with SQL
The character-0 segments prevent us from manually configuring a BOM (standard Oracle functionality via CTO).
