Error - Column 'physician_minc' cannot be null

physician_minc
is not mandatory field. How can I fix this problem ?

Answer

You have defined the not null value to 'physician_minc':

`physician_minc` varchar(20) NOT NULL,

How can you pass the null value to it.First you need to make the physician_minc column as null then only you can pass your desired null value.

`physician_minc` varchar(20) NULL,
