you can't do that in a make table query.
after running your make table query (without the yesNo field), run this codes



sub addYesNoField()
Dim p As DAO.Property, db As DAO.Database
Set db = CurrentDb
With db.TableDefs("tableX")
    .Fields.Append .CreateField("MyYesNo", dbBoolean)
    Set p = .Fields("MyYesNo").CreateProperty("displaycontrol", dbInteger, 106)
    .Fields("MyYesNo").Properties.Append p
End With

this sub will create the yesno field as check box


sub addYesNoField()
Dim p As DAO.Property, db As DAO.Database
Set db = CurrentDb
With db.TableDefs("tableX")
    .Fields.Append .CreateField("MyYesNo", dbBoolean)
    Set p = .Fields("MyYesNo").CreateProperty("displaycontrol", dbInteger, 106)
    .Fields("MyYesNo").Properties.Append p
End With
end sub


change tablex and MyYesNo feild with actual names
