Hi Girvin,

Linux LO
I am working on my MySQL Base reports with Report Builder.  The default
output of a boolean value is TRUE/FALSE.  Is there a way to change this
to a check mark or X for TRUE and blank for FALSE?
All the FALSEs clutter up my reports, making the TRUEs hard to see in
the forest.  The forms use a check mark widget, which would be ideal.

A partial workaround, because I haven't found a way to insert unicode
characters into a number formatted field control :

In Report Edit Mode, bring up the Properties of the control you want to

On the first tab "General", set Formatting to Number - General.
On your Data tab :
Data Field Type : Field or Formula

Data Field : select your boolean field

When you now save and run the report, you will get '1' and '0' instead
of 'True' and 'False'
