I have a form that has several "Yes/No" fields, and several "Yes/No/Maybe" fields.

What would you suggest I build the database fields like to handle these consistently?

Create a column of the correct data size like a VARCAHR(5) or CHAR(1) and constrain that column to only accept those values "Yes/No/Maybe" or "Y/N/M"
