I use a dbgrid populated by SQL statements extracting data from an Access database. My datatypes are set to currency and I would like to have the default value set to null so if there is no value a blank will appear in the grid cell.  With this there is a problem because you can not add a null field. Any suggestions. Please help.  Thanks

Use the IIF function to return your field value like this:

IIF(MyCurrencyField Is Null, MyCurrencyField, 0)
