Interested in Language
I have seen the word "being" are being using in different ways.
To my knowledge, generally, it uses as passive voice, but I have seen as below as well.

How about this
"With regard to Issue 2 it was noted that approximately 1% of items resulted in a Null value being populated into the Table"
Shouldn't this be as "..... were being populated...."
So you reckon that also comes under gerunds phrase.
Could you please explain why can not we use were being populated there.
