I am using ADO to create tables, fields & relationships etc., I have created a field called Archived which I created as a boolean (Yes/No). How do I then set this fields format property to TRUE/FALSE???

Any code would be a help

Thanx in advance

The field called Archived will automatically be false.
as you access the field you can change it to true if needed.

Tim, Yes this is an Access database!

CJ, Do you mean use 0 and 1's in my vb program.?
e.g. rs![Archived] = 1  or rs![Archived] = 0
If so... can't do that!!!

Planocz, Go back to sleep. I don't want know how to set the DefaultValue! Even if that's what your talking about???

Sense I'm asleep try this code...
 
    Select Case rs![Archived]
        Case True
             rs.Update "Archived", False
        Case False
             rs.Update "Archived", True
      End Select
