It is indeed a terrible ommision considering that Codd stated that the only data type that MUST be in a RDBMS is a BOOLEAN.

There are only 2 values in a BOOLEAN.. TRUE or FALSE. This is 2-valued logic.

SQL Server 2K has the BIT type which is 3-valued logic.. TRUE, FASLE or NULL. Closed but definately no cigar........
