How format result in a SQL query

I have this in a query design (SQL view) for a listbox:

Format(tblPrintOrdDistribution.PrintOrdDetailComplete) AS Complete

Which is fine.  The name of the column is "Complete" which is what I want.  But the result is showing -1 and I want it to be Yes or No.  

What do I do with the syntax to make that happen?

is PrintOrdDetailComplete an integer?

can you do Format(case when PrintOrdDetailComplete = -1 then 'No' else 'Yes' end)  AS Complete

You don't seem to be doing any formatting there - there's no format string.

Anyways, instead of formatting you could try this expression.

Complete:Iif(tblPrintOrdDistribution.PrintOrdDetailComplete=-1, "Yes", "No")

Nothing with the syntax...

- Select the column in the query designer
- Right-click and select "Properties"

You can set the format of your Boolean field to Y/N here.
