All fields must have a specified data type. Any writes to the field will be type checked based on the data type. A non-conforming value will cause an error to be returned. It is possible, however, that a field of type INTEGER or ATOM will return an empty sequence. This actually means that the field is NULL--no value has yet to be assigned to it.
