Setting a default value for a custom column?

I did a search of the forum but couldn't find anything about this topic.

Is there any way to set a default value for a custom column for all newly imported books? I created a "Read" column that has a Yes/No value so I can keep track of what I've read. When I import a new book to the library I'd like it to default to "No" instead of showing up as "Undefined".

Thanks,

--Jim

Thanks for the pointer to the thread. I didn't have the magic combination of search words to stumble across it myself...
