in the design view of the table
add the yesNo field,
you can place 0 (zero) in the default value
which is normally the default value for a YesNo field

That gives me the value, but I was looking to have the Y/N checkbox in that field so a user could check a record they want to exclude from a second query I will run off of table.  Is that possible or perhaps a diff method would be a better approach?

you can't produce a check box in a make table query.
it is possible to convert the YN field to a check box using vba codes, but that is another topic.

Yes, it is.  But why didn't you just post that reference or code, rather than calling it "another topic"?

vsllc, recommend you give capricorn1 the points.

You shouldn't use a MakeTable anyway - it's hard to control.  We always use a work table with a persistent structure.  Instead of the MakeTable query, clear the work table out with a Delete query and then reload it with an Append query.  Then you can structure it and control data any way you like.

Cheers,
Armen

I stayed with the Cbool since 0/1 is the value to be held anyway.  The checkbox was going to be used for the user to select/deselect, but I decided best to keep them out of the table.

Thanks for the help!
