Are you able to update this field's value with the arcmap field calculator? – Kirk Kuykendall Oct 17 '12 at 14:50

Some ideas to check:

  1. Have you confirmed that you created a valid pTable object and it's not actually Nothing?
  2. Does IS_CLOSED exist in the table?
  3. If IS_CLOSED exists is it actually a numeric field?
