Most likely the development database and the production database have different schema.

In particular, the database field associated with Path2 probably has an additional constraint on it specifying that it may not be Null.

You can fix it by:
(1) removing the constraint on the production server if and only if that is appropriate (There's some reason that constraint is there.)
... or ...
(2) changing the code, such that it doesn't ever attempt to store a Null.
