View Full Version : Adding a column to an Access Database

Does anyone know the SQL statement needed to insert a yes/no tickbox column to a table in Access?
The statement below works but it doesn't make a tickbox, only a 1/0 (boolean) field for some reason.
ALTER TABLE table_name ADD COLUMN column_name YESNO
Thanks in advance

I believe that yesno has to be in brackets plus you need a slash like:

Thanks ecnarongi but it doesn't work.
I tried your code in the SQL editor in Access and it gives a syntax error:
ALTER TABLE table_name ADD COLUMN column_name [yes/no]
Do you have a working example you can post?

I can't find it :( , you might have to hack this one. when I look for examples all I get is the -1/0 boolean thing. sorry I could not be of more assistance.

this seemed to work
ALTER TABLE myTable ADD COLUMN isLocked YESNO
