Subject [IBO] Re: TIBOBCDFields and TIBOFloatFields
Hi Jason

The standard components and greplace are not so bad, but the
origional database was based on clipper, then converted into BDE
with dbase as the backend, and I get the joy of moving it into IB.

The guy who did the bde work was very good at using every obscure
and peculiar bug/feature of the bde to get it to do things it was
never intended to be used for.

Right now I am looking at how to use boolean fields.
I have a domain that is a char(1) that I want IB to use as a boolean.

Do you have a quick one liner how to, that I can use so that IB will
define it as a boolean and handle the T/F correctly?

best regards
