I've been following this thread... was thinking maybe some form of the following may be usable...

-- In T-SQL
Create Table TestTable (ID Int, TestF Bit)
-- Then change:
-- Insert into TestTable (ID, TestF) Values (10, True)
-- to something like:
Insert into TestTable (ID, TestF) SELECT 10, True -- Won't Work, but
Insert into TestTable (ID, TestF) SELECT 10, True From (Select 1 as True, 0 as False) DerivedTB
-- or
Insert into TestTable (ID, TestF) SELECT 10, False From (Select 1 as True, 0 as False) DerivedTB

where all but the new values are "constant" texts.





Once you understand the BITs, all the pieces come together

The problem is that the SQL CAN'T BE CHANGED

Yeh Noel, I hear ya. Just wanted to maybe give you some "ammo" or thoughts that might help.

Is the statement hard coded into an app some where, and is now being issued to SQLSrv. instead of Access?

What happened in this case is that Access is Smart Enough to convert True to 1 when sending the query to sql server

Yes, would be interesting to hear why the statement can't be changed.

If that's a third party app, I wouldn't hesitate to contact the vendor.

Just a thought!

Would there be any gain when this front-end would fire the query against an ADP project with linked SQL Server tables? I don't know what ADP exactly does, but the statement wouldn't need to be changed.
