Create yes/no field based on location of other shapefiles

I believe what I'm wanting to achieve is fairly simple...
I'm wanting to create a field which basically says yes or no to whether or not the feature falls completely within another feature in a different shapefile.

I've tried using the spatial join function and it works in that it can distinguish whether or not it falls within another feature but the field doesn't say yes/no it has a value in.

Any help would be much appreciated.
