I have just converted to FileMaker Pro from v6 to v7.3 and have found out that FileMaker 7 doesn't support alphabetic characters in number fields any more.  I was using this method to sum my yes/No checkboxes.  Is there some new fuction/formula that will sum yes/no check boxes for me?

(my firm hasn't gone to v8 (though we are licensed for it) because we are not on Windows XP SP2 yet)

no, there isn't. this was a side effect they decided to clear off.
I suggest you replace yes by 1 and no by 0, and then you can sum them again. or change this field from number to text type.
