Are you sure the column you are referring to is used in your query directly? I think when you use an expression (something like Val([Column1])) then the value is displayed as a Number (0 for No, -1 for Yes)

It is a linked query...would that be causing the issue?

In your query's Design view, right-click the field in question and click "Properties"

In the field's Property Sheet, verify that the "Display Control" property is set to Check Box.

Check Box
