When binding a database table to a 8.1 Perspective table component, are empty strings passable to the table component?
Context if desired:
I’m using a named query to bind a database table to a Perspective view table component. My database table includes a column with empty strings. While attempting to bind, I ran into a configuration exception error related to “blank attribute” as well as am empty dataset. I replaced all empty strings and all nulls with “NA”. This got rid of the error and I’d like to make sure I understand why.
So, are empty strings not allowed in Perspective table components?
