How to Display Nothing or 0000-00-00 When the DB Date Column is Empty

How to Display Nothing or 0000-00-00 When the DB Date Column is Empty


There are date fields in a particular page which don't always have data in them, yet DW always displays some value in them. As it is, when the date column is empty (no date has been previously entered in the DB) DW displays 01-01-1970 in the date field, which I suppose is the default date. I have tried entering 0000-00-00 as the default value in the DB but DW still displays that default date.

Is there any way to avoid that? Is there any way to have DW leave that page field blank or display zeros when no date has been entered in the DB?

Thank you for your attention
