Lookup List/Combo Box Yes/No Example

The Simplest of Lookup Lists - the Y/N Drop Down List

First you may say why use a Y/N field - use a check box. The answer is: don't use check boxes on forms!  They are difficult to sort by and simply clicking in or near the field will cause the value to change - often accidentally.

Use a text field in your table with a length of 1.  Put a Validation Rule such as: 'in ("Y","N")'.  Don't define a lookup in the table design (while not as important on a Y/N field, you'll see why this is discourage in discussions in our other examples).

In form design view click the icon for a Combo Box and drop it in your form.  The combo box wizard will activate.  Choose to enter your own values.  Then put a Y in the first line and a N in the second line.  In may choose a default answer in the next screen.  Finally, tell the wizard with which table field the combo box will be associated.
