If you import csv into R there's a setting for describing the notation of missing values in that file.
data <- read.csv("data.csv", na.strings="n/a")

…Val to use that value instead of null. Note, that if you use a value that is not in line with your column type, it will confuse the detection and possibly mislabel your column as mixed.
set emptyValue : 0, to use that empty value during csv parsing. Note that if the type of empty value is not null or undefined, it should match the expected type of your column, otherwise it might break detection of column type.
