I am working with a bicycle and pedestrian facility file geodatabase where I am continually appending new records to feature class attribute tables. When I append new records, if there is no data for a certain field, ArcMap will automatically populate the records as "null" for that field.
Is there any way to prevent the records from being populated as null? I am afraid that it will send the signal that there are errors in the database for database users. I am considering using "Find and Replace" or possibly a script to replace the "null" values but wanted to see if there was a way to prevent this since I don't want to constantly have to delete the null records every time I append data or add features.
