asp is updating value to '-1' at every kind of field type when the variable has true but i need only '1' or '0' (by the way false is working correctly updating for zero) for the "select * from" operations. 

I tried to test mysql from phpmyadmin/command prompt and it makes true/false operations correctly (1 for the true). 

System Specs:
Windows Server
ASP Codes
Mysql 5.0.2

How to repeat:
when the ASP sends a true value to mysql then i saw the value is turning to '-1' in the record's field.

Hi Gurhan and thanks for your report.

I do not quite understand it. Can you please attach complete test case demonstrating the error and upgrade MySQL server to most recent version (I presume 5.0.2 *is* the MySQL server version).

Afaik, -1 *is* used by MS to represent TRUE value...

Thanks for your interests Tonci.

I think it isn't mysql server version related.

It is quite simple operation.

The Site has the Guest Book that coded with ASP. 

When a guest writes a comment to the Guestbook, the code sends this message data to mysql's guestbook table with '0' value to the 'approve' field. Everything is correctly working as yet. When a operator reads that message and click to APPROVE for the publishing on the site, the code sends a 'true' value for the message to mysql then i saw the record's approve field has turned '-1' from '0'. But the site's guestbook views only the records that have '1' in their 'approve' fields.

We're sorry, but the bug system is not the appropriate forum for asking help on using MySQL products. Your problem is not the result of a bug.

Support on using our products is available both free in our forums at http://forums.mysql.com/ and for a reasonable fee direct from our skilled support engineers at http://www.mysql.com/support/

Thank you for your interest in MySQL.

Explanation: Gurhan, so what now? Do I have to write ASP web site with appropriate forms and buttons and guess as best as I can how you wrote and run it?

Please attach full test case demonstrating this error...

Sorry Tonci for the misunderstanding,

I'll try the forums and asp sources to fix this problem.

But also it looks like to me a kind of bug about the connection between asp's ado and mysql. 

I will prepare a test case demo that includes pictures, explanation and codes and send it within the shortest possible time..

thanks again..
