    What is the default value of this numeric field in your table? Is it zero or Null? Usually the default value for numeric fields is zero.

    I don't understand when your also wrote: "However, my solution means that that field will always contain a zero even if I don't populate it." Well yes! That's the reason for default values, they provide an initial value so you don't have to manually populate it.

    So, what is your problem?
