I have a model that generally works fine, apart from the step that takes the table into an XY layer.
When it does this there is one field in particular i notice that all the values in that field become NULL.  (I'm not yet sure how many other fields this is effecting).

I have tried the same step manually and it does the same thing!

The field that changes is a sting field, and before the XY event step the values contained in that field are NULL, R, or P.

Any ideas how it stop it removing all the R and P values?
