I'm working with a church and am trying to print a report from a database. I want to use a check box (or filled square) to indicate the condition of a binary variable. It can be either TRUE or FALSE. Any help or suggestion would be appreciated. I do have the report extension from Oracle loaded and am using it to build reports.

Your best bet might be to insert a character representing a ticked or unticked box as the result of evaluating the TRUE or FALSE condition of the field. I don't know whether you can do this directly in the Report Builder (I haven't tried) or whether you would need a macro to do this.
