Hi, I am currrently using : boolean status = rsInfo.getBoolean("status"); to access a boolean (Yes / No) field in an Access DB. If I need to port this to Oracle, will I need to make the field as Number(1) and use int status = rsInfo.getInt("status"); and thus change all my Java code Thanks, Anoop

Generally in Oracle people use a Char(1) field and store 'T' and 'F' or 'Y' and 'N'. However with resultSet.getBoolean() that will throw an exception. With java I just tried it out since I'm interested, if you use a number column, resultSet.getBoolean() works if you use 0 = false and null = false. Everything else is true. Adam
I have seen things you people would not believe, attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion, c-beams sparkling in the dark near the Tennhauser Gate. All these moments will be lost in time, like tears in the rain.
