In MSSQL, you can easily convert in an sql statement by using Convert()... (example: CONVERT(bit, EmployeeID))

is there a way of doing this in access?!?  if so, how?  

Thanks!

You can use the Conversion funtions like
CBool(expression)
CByte(expression)
CCur(expression)
CDate(expression)
CDbl(expression)
CDec(expression)
CInt(expression)
CLng(expression)
CSng(expression)
CStr(expression)
CVar(expression)

Check the access doumentation for limitations.
