Null integers reported as 0

Whenever we have a data type of integer that has a null value reported on the survey (for fields that are not required), the actual data value that is stored for the field is 0.  Is there some setting or some such that we need to set so that null values are reported as null instead of 0?

 

Based on some of our older data, this is a new 'feature'. We have records from older surveys where null integers are indeed reported as null instead of 0.

 

Thank you.
