I've found this by accident while renaming,renumbering fields

You can't search and replace on a Checkbox

> Export the form with the checkbox to .txt
> Edit the .txt and change ;CheckBox; to ;TextBox;
> Import the .txt and compile

and now you have a Yes/No field and .. search/replace works

I have seen this done without a .txt file too. Please let me know how?

    In this case i would create a report with the record as the dataitem and set a tableview to change only selected records. After it, you can easily write two line code in OnAfterGetRecord:

    BooleanField := TRUE/FALSE;

    Press Strg+r and run the report. This ist much more effectiv.
