E-PC: SQLExec SELECT Returning " " (space character) instead of returning "" (empty string) for Character fields (Doc ID 2111019.1)

Last updated on JANUARY 03, 2023

Applies to:

PeopleSoft Enterprise PT PeopleTools - Version 8.51 to 8.53 [Release 8.4]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

This goes against PeopleBooks' description of SQLExec which says SQLExec will trim all leading spaces.
