I want to Default my addnum column = null Where parcel.address_ID is null. Both in the same table.

In the Default Value or Binding Column properties i added this but its not working.  ('Set addnum = null Where parcel.address_ID is null')

I would like my addnum column to be populated with a Address Vale or be null.
Addnum column is nvarchar(10)
Address_ID colunm is INT

Thanks

You need to use a trigger on Insert.
Just check to see if a value has been assigned, and if not, go grab the correct one and use it

Must be something like this

USE Your_Database
GO
IF OBJECT_ID ('Parcel.CheckParcelAddress', 'TR') IS NOT NULL
   DROP TRIGGER Parcel.CheckParcelAddress;
GO
CREATE TRIGGER CheckParcelAddress
ON Your_Database.Parcel
AFTER INSERT, UPDATE
AS
  UPDATE Parcel
  SET ADDNUM=NULL
  WHERE ADDRESS_ID IS NULL
GO
