I should have mentioned that it is for use in an sql query grid, not sure if access 2007 will allow it.

Do you mean bit 128 or the bit for value 128 (i.e. bit 8)

if l AND 128 then
 bit8 = true
end if

Hmm that is hard to read.
Here is a function
Function Bit8(l As Long) As Boolean
    If l And 128 Then
        Bit8 = True
    End If
End Function
