[Koha] NULL items

Greetings colleagues, I have tried to get our Circulation And Fines Rules preferences to work to no avail.
Recently I ran a Catalog Statistics report and discovered that 6251 out of 6386 items.itype are NULL which probably explains why the Circ Rules aren't working.

Is there a way to assign or fill the NULL items.itype values with one of our itype values? Even better would be to assign a specific value for each shelving location.

As far as I can see in the staff interface, the item types (942c & 952y) are filled in. Changing the 942c and 952y does not seem to alter the NULL; the Catalog Statistics report result number does not change. Additionally, any idea how I managed to have so many NULL items.itypes; could it be my adding a space prefix to Description when in Modify Item Type so that alphabetically the most used itype is the first choice?
