Subject [jira] [Updated] (DRILL-5246) NULL not supported in VALUES clause
Date Thu, 09 Feb 2017 00:50:41 GMT

     [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DRILL-5246?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:all-tabpanel
]

Paul Rogers updated DRILL-5246:
-------------------------------
    Description: 
The following is valid in DRILL:

{code}
SELECT * FROM (VALUES ( TRUE, FALSE ))
SELECT * FROM (VALUES ( TRUE ), (FALSE))
{code}

But, the following is not:
{code}
SELECT * FROM (VALUES ( TRUE, NULL, FALSE ))
SELECT * FROM (VALUES ( TRUE ), (FALSE), (NULL))
{code}

Internally, a bare "null" may be an issue since Drill does not have a null type. So, the first
example might be a problem (a column for which the only value is Null, but we don't know a
null of which type.) But, the second example should be fine: we know that the type is boolean.

While Drill's error reporting in the web UI is not clear, it seems that I'm getting a syntax
error when using Null:

{code}
org.apache.drill.common.exceptions.UserRemoteException: VALIDATION ERROR:
>From line 1, column 43 to line 1, column 46: Illegal use of 'NULL' SQL Query null 
{code}
