FileMaker Pro 8 has a new function called GetAsBoolean. It appears like an interesting function, maybe something that would replace the IsEmpty function, where 1 = true and 0 = false. If you read the ambiguous description in the help file it certainly looks like it will work for any type of field. However, you might be surprised with the text field limitation.
