Access to SQL7 and update query

Posted on 1999-07-02

Last Modified: 2012-05-04
I have just moved an Access97 database to a SQL7 database and am testing my queries.  My update queries are failing because of the Boolean updates.  When i analyze it on the SQL server, it doesn't seem to be able to interpret the TRUE and FALSE expressions.  It fails on a statement liek this:  
UPDATE Table SET Field = True WHERE Id = 1

Any clues?

In SQL70 do not recognize true or false
True = 1 and False = 0
Your sentence must be:
UPDATE Table SET Field = 1 WHERE Id = 1
