I have a function that uses an execute statement to insert data into a
table, I do in my implementation of table partitioning.
Anyway, I ran into trouble when NULL values were being passed in
(fields are nullable) and my insert statement turned into a big NULL.
Here's an equivalent statement that caused trouble:
select 'some text, should be null:'|| NULL
This returns NULL and no other text. Why is that? I wasn't expecting
the "some text.." to disappear altogether.
Is this a bug?
I was able to work around the problem by using COALESCE (and casting
variables since it wants the same data types passed to it).
