hi,

I am trying to pass a value of boolean to a sp. I am getting an error

Failed to convert parameter value from a String to a Boolean.

On the aspx page, I have code as
                                <asp:ListItem value="">Select</asp:ListItem>
                                <asp:ListItem value="True">Yes</asp:ListItem>                         
                                  <asp:ListItem value="False">No</asp:ListItem>

on CS page, I have code as

SqlCom.Parameters.Add("@var", System.Data.SqlDbType.Bit).Value = var.Text.ToString();


The field is a bit data type. Any ideas?  thx

Bit fields are either 0 or 1 or null.  Change the value in your ASPX to 0 = false and 1 = true.  Thank should help out.

thanks for the quick reply. Would it work if the user did not select neither YES nor NO?  thanks

You would need to pass the null in that case.  Just make sure your bit field in SQL is capable of allowing nulls as an acceptable value and you should be good.
