How to set a Date/Time field to Null

Version 1


    You may want a date/time field to be null, but the expression isn't allowing it - you might getting an error close to "value cannot be converted to a datetime."


    In order for an expression to allow for a null value in Date/Time fields, the null function must be in the format below- otherwise, it will not allow the null value. 

    Correct value:  $(null) 

    Additional information: using "null" or null or even emptystring function is not allowed in a data/time field because it cannot be converted to datetime.
