Greetings ACEDB users,

I am unable to leave 'Int' fields blank in a .ace file being read into
v4.1.  My model looks like this:

      MyTag UNIQUE Int UNIQUE Int Text

In version 3, I could read an .ace file that looked like this:

   SomeClass : "name"
   MyTag "" "" "I only want to store text"

But in version 4, I get the following error:

   internal system error : parse error
   near line 27 in name : not an 
   integer after MyTag

Is there a way to leave an Int field blank?  Thanks.
