We have converted our Booleans to T or F char fields. This works great with
all the standard Delphi components we use, even our .AsBoolean code works
perfectly. You should be able to do your 'if Data.Field then' code, I am
not sure because we prefer explicitly doing the comparison 'if
DataField.AsBoolean = True then'.
