php – Zend: How to insert NULL values into MySQL

Posted by: admin July 12, 2020 Leave a comment

Questions:

I am using Zend Framework with MySQL,Apache and Ubuntu 9.04.

I am trying to insert NULL values into database like this:

$personObj->setPersonId( '1' );
$personObj->setPersonEmail('NULL');
$personObj->save();

But ‘NULL’ is stored in database as string and not NULL.

When I use this:

$personObj->setPersonId( '1' );
$personObj->setPersonEmail(NULL);
$personObj->save();

But nothing happens and previous entry is unchanged.

What should I do to insert NULL values into MySQL?

How to&Answers:

If you are not modifying any of the values after they are assigned then

new $personObj->setPersonEmail(new Zend_Db_Expr('NULL'));

Answer:

First thought would be straight passing in the null keyword, without quotes around it. As pavium said, the quotes around it turn it into a string.

Answer:

I think putting NULL in quotes is what makes it look like a string.

I don’t know about your method, but for a direct insert though a mysql INSERT command, the single quotes around a NULL are incorrect.
