Access Checkbox Form Field from a SQL Database

I have a SQL database field that I have added to a table that I have set the data type to INT.  I have updated the table to set the value for the field to "0".  I have gone back and altered the table to uncheck the box to allow nulls.

Now my problem.  I have this SQL database connected to an Access datapoint.  I have gone back to Access and refreshed the linked table in the Linked Table Manager to recognize the field that I have added.

I now want to add this field to a form as a checkbox, but when I click and drag the field onto the form in Design View and then click Change To to hopefully change it to a checkbox, the checkbox is not an option.

The form is based on a table, not a query so there is nothing to change there.  I am not sure what I have done wrong or need to do to complete this simple task.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Create a checkbox directly on the form. The change its controlsource to be the name of your field.

Thank you Anders.  I wasn't seeing the field in the control source of the form and had to modify that "query" to add the new field and was able to then change the form field type to checkbox.  Thank you again!!!!!
