I'm using an outerjoin with ISNULL as follows to populate a gridview on a webpage:

SELECT id,thing1,ISNULL(valid, 0)  as Valid
FROM things as d  left OUTER JOIN thing2 r  ON d.ID=r.parentThingID  
Which returns the correct results (thanks guys!)


when I try to populate the grridview, the checkboxes fail to "check" based on the value in valid:

i.e. Checked='<%# Convert.ToBoolean(Eval("Valid")) %>'/>

The check box gets populated fine if I'm just using a straight queary without using the ISNULL. (where none of the values are null).
