Hello,
I am using DTS to upload an excel spreadsheet into the database. I have several cells that are empty and it gets uploaded as "NULL" value into the database. I want the fields to remain empty in the dba, meaning nothing at all, not for it to read "NULL" in all the empty fields. Can someone help please?

Update table
set col = ''
where col is NULL
