What's the best way in php to check if a db column is null b/c IS_NULL() is not working for me.
The database is SQL Server 2000
<?php
								if (is_null($row["postForm"])) <-- not working
								{
									echo "<a href=trans.php?travelID=".$row["travelID"]."&destination_id=".$row["destinationID"]."&type=post>Please Complete.</a>";
								}
								else
								{
									echo "VIEW completed form";
								}
							?>

Also, the data type for that column is "bit" so the default is supposed to be zero but it shows null.
That's why I'm checking if it's no.  It's just a "Yes" or "No" column.
