SQL Server equavelent Boolean values

16 New Member

I currently have a project where i have to redefine certain table fields and their data types.

The problem is i have fields to mimic or duplicate an access table, but the problem is that certain fields are boolean values with yes/no attributes. Sql server does not support boolean values to my understanding. The sql server corresponding fields are of type char which is updated in a webpage by entering y or n values. Is their a way i can manipulate the the database fields in my sql server database to make it boolean values and receive 1 and 0's? Would using a bit data type for the char fields be a good idea?

The two databased must match, because it is part of an automated process.
Im using SQL Server 2000. version 8

Please any advice.

However, I have hit a brick wall trying to restore the data from SQL Server. I originally had my collection and object

Currently our SQL Server 2000 database table field is using char to store as boolean, ie. "T" or "F". Now we change the field from char to bit field. I am not sure how it has impact on the C# code. For example, the stored procedure returns SELECT * FROM employee There is a field "ismale", "T" is male, "F" is female.
