    Sorry, seems I don't get it, could you please explain more
    in detail what this function should achieve / fix.

    This is mainly for document.

    If a PFI returns null it does not mean that I want it to
    disappear from the document.
    Suppose I see

    POReference :

    And I want to see it also when the value is Null

    Poreference is maybe not a good example.

    Suppose some sql function in the _v views

    Now I got it...

    But how would you then supress the Description? We have for
    example a lot of fields on documents which should be there
    only if not null and then I also don't wanna get the
    description otherwise?

    Maybe we must enhance the AD with an additional record which
    would define the Supress Issue, as this would solve it best
    I think?

    It is the meaning of coalesce in oracle view for me
    The IsSuppressNull is there to make disappear item when they
    are null.
    When they are null the IsSupressNull is not checked then I
    want an empty field.
    I don't think I ask for something strange or not in link
    with the field say it will do ?

    But this is not coalesce. As said I will put this on the
    list for AD extend, so that we will create a YN column
    which could be used for it.

    The point is that people know of the current behaviour and
    it is wanted, that if a field is null the field decription
    etc. is also not displayed.

    A possible workaround for the moment might be to use a
    label only for the description, and to leave the
    description of the column empty.
