When I create a report in Act the Yes/No box field return yes or no in the final report which is just what is needed
when you do the same in a mail merge into Word you get the answer True/False and the same applies when you merge into the Act word processor.
Does anyone know if there is a fix or a work around for this?

Those are different interpretations of what is actually stored in the database which is 0 for false and -1 for true.

So is there any way to make them appear as Yes/No in the mail merge into word?
I'm no expert but maybe something you could change in the field codes... here's the field code as it appears in word from a Yes/No.
Thanks in advance for your help

Unfortuntely had already found this article when I googled my problem, but im not an expert with Word field codes so not sure how i would go about altering the code to make the True appear as a Yes and False appear as a No.
