I am trying to express the following MS SQL:

SELECT ((Table.Field = Value) AND (Table.Field2 = Value2)) AS NewFlag FROM Table WHERE...

According to the Microsoft documentation, Boolean expressions are not permitted in the output of a record set. Interestingly, SQL for MS Access allows this.

Question: Is there a workaround for this limitation?
