I have a boolean column in one of my tables in pgsql. What I would like to do is:
SELECT * FROM public_table WHERE public_table.bShowReport=TRUE;

But I get a data mis-match, although this query works fine from pgAdmin3.

I know Access stores bools a little weird so I have tried public_table.bShowReport=-1; and public_table.bShowReport="TRUE"

I have tried this as a pass-through query, and it works but I want to feed this query into a report and Access limits your ability to use sub-reports if the parent report is based upon a pass-through query.

I have played around with the "Bools as Char" and "True is -1" settings.
With "Bools as Char" selected I run into problems when Access attempts to edit the field. With "True is -1" I get ODBC Error #7 boolean:=integer

I have tried this with 8.02.04 and 8.02.02. I am hoping there is just some little bit that I am missing.
