Abintio Record Format- Setting NULL to variable

I have a question regarding Ab Initio CoOperating system.

I have a compoents input record format with a field set to NULL, like,

record
string(3) INPUT = NULL;
end;

Comp A -----FlowAtoB---------> Comp B

The above record format is the FlowAtoB. I can understand that this sets the value of INPUT to null. But, In case I have value for this from previous component A, how will this behave?

<a href= https://tekslate.com/ab-initio...>Ab Initio</a>

I'm not able to clearly understand the use of this from the help document.

The script above is the text representation of the format of the record being processed. See the 7th image here where the record formats are discussed.

There is a separate transformation type of format - see the third image or where they talk about transformations.

An awesome improvement would be big data solutions, for example, implementing some kind of business intelligence or neural networks for artificial intelligence. In the next release, I would like them to include big data and solutions in the cloud.
