Hi Simirin,

You have only 2 options to set in this case..

1. Any date
2. Null

You can not assign anything except above 2 to a date type field..

Thanks,
Sandeep

Hello,

single quote'('') represent a string so you can't set like TEXT__C  ='';, you should set TEXT__C  =null;

HI Simrin,
You can use Text__c = null;

Its working fine for me no null is displayed.

Thanks

I am having a similar issue. I am using salesforce-python-toolkit. Python doesn't have a null. Instead it has None value. If I set the field to None and trying calling the API, the field is not set to blank. The field still retains the original field. Please assist.
