Either True or false, -1 or 0, your call.

One problem with Access, as you have already discovered, is that instead of the 1 for True that SQL Server (and darn near every other db) uses Access uses -1.

Excel uses 1 for True as well, which occasionally causes head-scratching when you push-pull data between Excel
and Access :)
