Yes No Field

Experts,

I have  a true YN field (not text) in the table
I have a filter form with unbound text box (cboExpired)
this textbox is value list with "Yes";"No"
  but this does not work with text.
If I change it from "yes";"No" to -1,0 then it does work.
The user will not understand -1 or 0.  How can I associate -1 to "Yes" and 0 to "No"?

I seem to remember that you can put a sort of alias name in the row source similar to this:
"Yes";(-1);"No";(0)  .....but this is wrong.  
 

Thank you

how, where do you use the cboExpired as filter?

you can use the switch function for this

private sub cboExpired_afterupdate
dim blFilter as boolean

blFilter=iif(cboExpired="yes",-1,0)

me.filter="[YN]=" & blFilter
me.filteron=true
end sub

Cap: I use a form with a few different unbound fields and press report button.  One of those fields is named cboExpired with row source "Yes";"No".  

please see attached.  

I copied the afterupdate code but when I ran the report it said "too complex", which was teh same msg I received when operating as if text.  I dont receive this msg if I place 0 or -1 in the qry under report.

What do you think now?
