Clearing a Text Area field via the API.

I'm trying to clear a Text Area field on an object and save the change but Update() isn't actually updating the object in salesforce (though it runs without error).  Here's basically what I'm doing:

sfObject.Field = "";



I know my code works properly since it does update SalesForce when I change the "" above to "Test".  I've also tried setting the value to null to no affect.  Do I need to set it to a space, set another property or call some other method?

you can't clear the value this way, you need to use the fieldsToNull array.
