a “checkbox” field stores an array of values, you would need to use a ‘meta_query’ so that you can compare using LIKE "Yes" or something along those lines. If you changed the field type you’ll also need to edit all of the posts to update the values.
What function are you using the query args in? Are you using WP_Query or something else?
