I'm beginning to translate base samples on documentation to have also them with Firebird as embedded database.
Dragging the 'filter' table from Example_Autotext_Searchmark_Spelling._FBodb.odb
to a new base file with FB, I found the error.
The ID field is Yes/No[BOOLEAN] type field, that's not available with embedded FB.
Yes/No[BOOLEAN] type field, it's not available with embedded FB.
Have Yes/No[BOOLEAN] type field available with embedded FB.

Confirming on my Linux Mint 18 master build.
Boolean (Yes/No) does not appear in the list of possible field types in table edit mode.
Wastack committed a patch related to this issue.
It has been pushed to "master":
tdf#103074 Implement Boolean Type for FB driver
It will be available in 5.4.0.
The patch should be included in the daily builds available at
http://dev-builds.libreoffice.org/daily/ in the next 24-48 hours. More
information about daily builds can be found at:
Affected users are encouraged to test the fix and report feedback.
Is it possible to backport to 5.3.0?

> Is it possible to backport to 5.3.0?
Given that 5.3.0 is already in RC stage, I feel it is a bit late.
For 5.3.1, not sure we should start to introduce such functional changes rather than pure bugfixes. I won't approve it, but I won't veto it either.
Hi Lionel, by now it is under experimental features on 5.3, and if I'm not wrong will follow in that situation, so maybe it's a good oportunity to introduce this kind of funcionalities, while there could be more people testing without the risk to break their work.

That's a fair point, yes.
