When I export an Access Table as an Excel Spreadsheet, if the data has "checkbox" type data, it outputs the words "TRUE" and "FALSE" as the data.

Is there a way I can make it do 0 & 1 instead?

Thanks

If you are running an export query, you may be able to add some code to replace true with 1 and false with 0.  Otherwise, you can highlight that column in Excel and do a simple search and replace to convert True to 1 and False to 0.

Yes, don't export the table but a query:

Select Field1, Field2, Abs(CheckFieldA) As NumField1, Abs(CheckFieldB) As NumField2
Form tblYourTable

Of course, replace field and table names with those of yours.
