I wanted to create a yes/no field with a check box on my form in access called "IsPaid"  so if the invoice is paid I just click to put  a check mark in the box.  I added it to my table and it shows up (on the table) as a square that I can click in and put a check inside of it.  I want the same thing on the form, but instead of a square box that I can put a check mark in, it will only show a text box for putting in "yes" or "no."  How do I get it to show a box that I can just click on and put a check mark in it?
