I have a "Yes/No" column and I want it to be displayed as such on the list box. But it is being displayed as 0 or -1. I need to fix it. Here is the line that needs to be coded to replace 0 with No and -1 with Yes: TEMP_table_for_view.File

I tried a couple of things but something is not working right. Please help.
Thanks

Try this instead:

SELECT IIf(TEMP_table_for_view.File, "Yes", "No") AS YesOrNo
FROM TEMP_table_for_view

Hi gkhotline,

Change the row source for the Combo/listbox to -1;Yes;0;No
The row source type to Value List
Columns to 2
& column widths to 0;1

Good Luck!

Patrick,
I tried your code and it did not work. What I am trying to do is when i run the command listed below it sorts the data by a certain field, in this case by [file]. The command works just fine, but i need to format it so that I do not see -1/0, but rather yes/no. Please see the code below and let me knoe how to make it work. I am only concerned with the [File] field.
Thank you in advance.
Dim strSQL As String
    strSQL = "SELECT [Return ID], [Legal Entity from Returns], " & _
        "[State from Returns],[Year from Returns], " & _
        "[Filing Position], [FTI], Format([Apportionment Factor],""0.000000%"") AS Apportionment, [STI], " & _
        "Format (TEMP_table_for_view.[Applicable adjustment],""$#,##0"") AS [Applicable Adjustment ], " & _
        "Format (TEMP_table_for_view.[Change in Tax] ,""$#,##0"") AS [Change in Tax ], [Estimated Effect], [Filing Deadline], [File], " & _
        "[Reason] FROM [TEMP_table_for_view] "
    strSQL = strSQL & "ORDER BY [File] ASC"

this code:  IIf([TEMP_table_for_view.File],"Yes","No") AS File works in the Row Source query of the list box, but for some reason it does not work in the code I provided you above. I have no clue why.
Thanks

gkhotline,

You're going to have to elaborate further on what you are trying to do, and what you mean when you say
it does not work.

Regards,

Patrick

Hi,
Basically I have a "sort" button and when I release (on release) that button the command is being executed in a procedure (see code below). It is sorting the table before it is displayed in the listbox. In this case it is being sorted by [File] column. Currently the sort works perfectly, but it displays "0/-1" and I want it to display "yes/no".  What I mean by "it does not work" - when I click on that button it sends me back to my procedure with an error message, something to the effect "syntax is incorrect". It does not tell me what is the exact problem with my syntax and I know that it is that code that I inputed before, which is:
If I take it out it sorts it ok, but not the way I want it.
I hope that clarifies it a bit.
Thanks

Never mind..I just resolved it. "yes" and "no" had to be double quoted as such: IIf(TEMP_table_for_view.[File],""Yes"",""No"") AS [Files]
Thank you for your help!
