I have a yes/no filed in a table - how do I link a checkbox from a form to this filed so that when the check box is checked it displays yes in the table?

Thanks

If you want to show the yes/no value on the form itself (alongside the checkmark, say) add a textbox to the form bound to the same field as the checkbox and set its format property to Yes/No. Set the Enabled and Locked properties to No and Yes respectively so that users can't edit the value.

I think Gazz wants the -table- to show a Yes/No result, instead of the column of check boxes.
I tried formatting a Yes/No field in the table itself, and regardless of what I selected (true/false, yes/no, or on/off), the value returned in the table view was always a check box.
Now if this is pulled in through a query, I'm pretty sure it's always going to be a 0 or -1, unless you use an expression to convert that to whatever text you want viewed.
