Transitioning to PDO/MySQL. Need help with error. Column cannot be null

I am getting an error
Fatal error: Uncaught exception 'PDOException' with message 'SQLSTATE[23000]: Integrity constraint violation: 1048 Column 'specs6' cannot be null'

How do you allow null values in PDO?

$statement = $conn->prepare("INSERT INTO specsdownload(sku,specs1,specs2,specs3,specs4,specs5,specs6) VALUES(:sku,:specs1,:specs2,:specs3,:specs4,:specs5,:specs6)");
$statement->execute(array(
    "sku" => $data[0],
       "specs1" => $data[1],
	"specs2" => $data[2],
	"specs3" => $data[3],
	"specs4" => $data[4],
        "specs5" => $data[5],
	"specs6" => $data[6]
));

In your data table definition, 'specs6' is probably defined as 'Not Null'.  So in "specs6" => $data[6] you need to provide a default value for $data[6] so that it is never null.

Just to follow on from Dave correct observation, to get around the error replace

    "specs6" => $data[6]

with

    "specs6" => isset($data[6])?$data[6]:""

That will just add a blank value to the field, else allow IsNull in the field
