I need to store a string of 16 bits in two different tables and do bit operations on the values.  For example, a field in one table might be the value "0101010101010101" and a field in the other table might be "0001100111100010".  In VBA, I'll need to XNOR them together, get the result, and "OR" the result with another string of 16 bits.  What's the best data type to use to store these values?
