I have a raw excel file that has TRUE or FALSE for a [columnSpec]. Now I want to import that data in a similar table structure in access with the same number of columns and column data types. The [columnSpec] column in the access is a Yes/No field. Now when I load it, it gets loaded to the table with the values TRUE or FALSE but I don’t see any checkboxes that are checked or unchecked. How can I load the TRUE/FALSE filed in raw excel into a access table’s YES/NO field type, so that I am able to see the checkboxes for that field checked or unchecked?

You have to change the lookup property of the field in the table to checkbox.
