    Null Integers in Data Extract API

    Sean Mullane

      When a numeric field has NULL values in it Tableau recognizes this and handles it. I'm using Python to extract some data from a .csv which includes integer columns which may have some null values. The extract API is choking on these null values. Is there some way I can pass through those nulls with the API? Including the nulls with the integers is useful for my workbook. Any idea if this is a limitation of Python's handling of integers, or the API's?

       

      I suppose I can recode those nulls as -1 and rework the workbook if necessary, but wanted to find out first.
