No, because NULL != NULL - it is why there are dedicated operators.

What could work, is that you alter your table to [field NOT NULL DEFAULT ''] - that should transform all the NULL values for field to empty strings.

Not that reverse-in is horribly ineffective as it uses no indices at all; but it might work for you in this case provided you have no empty-stringed fields you need to preserve. If you do, just use a custom impossible value like 'deleteme'.

Unhappiness is discouraged and will be corrected with kitten pictures.
