I want to have compatible SQL for both Oracle database and Microsoft SQL server.

I want a compatible SQL expression that will return true for not null and not empty strings.

If I use:

column <> ''

it will work on Microsoft SQL server but not on Oracle database (as '' is null for Oracle)

If I use:

len(column) > 0

it will work on Microsoft SQL server but not on Oracle database (since it uses length() )

I have two tables to join with a column (say emp_id).. if emp_id in both the tables have null values, how will SQL Server and Oracle treat???

I read that informatica will neglect the NULL rows when joining..if I handle the null, by substituting -1, a cross-join will happen which i don't want..

What can I do here? (I cannot completely neglect the rows which has NULL)
