You have to specifiy another parameter as well, that will ignore blanks. I think that is possible.

Or use the column_name NULLIF column_name = BLANKS, that is also, and maybe better solution.

There can be also a possibility to use DECODE in this case, but that could be tricky. Since you might not know how many blanks there are in the field. But DECODE(SUBSTR(col_name,1,1),' '),'19990101') could work as well.
