What is the values of the Yes/No Column in SharePoint?

1, 0
Yes, No
"Yes", "No"
True, False

Trying to use calculations:

=IF([Col1]=Yes, 1, 0)

So if it's true, put 1, else 2.

But not matter what, it only shows 0. I believe I'm not using the correct datatype.

Try Using:

=IF([Col1], 1, 0)


=IF([Col1]=TRUE, 1, 0)

Return the calculated field as Number.


Sometimes comma(,) does not work in formula (I am not sure but it is based on something language or regional settings on your site). So in that case use semicolon(;) instead of comma(,).

  • can't believe it was that easy. The first one worked great! Thank you Ganesh.
