How can I import into a custom checkbox field from CSV?

I'm trying to create issues by import from CSV.  One of the fields I am importing into a custom field defined as type checkbox (only single checkbox, not a multiline drop down).  I keep getting errors like "The value [ {null=(whatever value I had)} ] can't be added to the Custom Field [ field ]. The value [ {null=(whatever value I had)} ] can't be found or is in the incorrect format".

I've tried with mapping to "Yes" and "No", "1" and "0", "TRUE" and "FALSE", "T" and "F", but I can't figure out what the right value is to use to be able to set this checkbox to checked or not.

Solved my own problem.  The value has to either be null or it has to be set to the specific string that was used in the definition of the custom field.
