Hi all,
I have a set of permissions that I want to store in a database.  They are all either true or false.  I currently have around 20 or so that I want to store into 1 field that will later be retrieved into a program.

 What is the best way to do this?

2 things I need to be able to do:
Store into 1 field in a database
Be able to add permissions.

There will be a follow up question on how to program in ASP.NET the storage into and retrieval from this database fields into some kind of variable.

You can use an integer column.  This will allow up to 32 true/false settings.  If you need more than that consider a bigint, sthis will support up to 64 true/false settings.
