I have a database field called WillCall.  This field holds either a 0 or 1.

In my report, I want to show a checkbox, and if the field has a 1, I want that checkbox to be checked, and if it is a 0 I don't want it to be checked.  How can I do this?

I think you will have to make it an image and supply a different graphic depending on the value,
e.g     =IIf(Fields!WillCall.Value=0, "NoTick.gif", "Tick.gif")

you can use Convert.ToBoolean
//1 true
bool myBoolvalue = Convert.ToBoolean(1);
//0 = false
bool myBoolvalue = Convert.ToBoolean(0);
then bound your checkbox to myBoolvalue

2sammy you can't have real checkboxes on the body of your repot - they're read only always

having an image is an option, but i think there is a bit easier way. you can set a font for your cell to wingings or webdings, which have ticked boxes, crossed boxes, filled rectangles, empty rectangles, and many other images usable for checked/unchecked representation, and then use iif to switch the images:

=iif( Fields!MyValue.Value = 1, "r", "z" )

* r and z are just for example - you'll have to find yourself what images you like more in those 4 fonts.

Good luck,

how about =iif( Fields!MyValue.Value = 1, "X", " " )?

also, if you want to have the border around it, you would put a code on all BorderStyles ....  
to make it solid if value = 1.
