check box to indicate yes or no

I am working on my first FileMaker application, for a nonprofit organization whose board i am on.


On the layout screen on which information about people who come to us is entered, we have several yes or no type fields. For instance a person might be a prisoner or a subscriber to our newsletter.


The way I thought to do it would be to have a number field that would have either a one or a zero in it. On the data entry screen if there was a one in that field there would be a check box with a check in it. If there is a zero in the field there would be a box without a check in it. To indicate that someone is a prisoner you would click on the box which would then turn from an empty box to a box with a check mark in it on the screen. The question is how to do this. Or if you have a alternate solution to this I'd be interested in hearing that. Thank you for any help that you can give me with this.
