Bad translation of True/False in ASP

My recent system is WinXp SP2 and IIS 5.1 using the french canadian language

The following code don't work anymore  in ASP (it was working fine with
win95 and PWS of Frontpage98)

      sql = "UPDATE MyBase SET "
      sql = sql & "Show= " & True

I found that he sql sent to the ODBC database is :
  Update MyBase Set  Show = Vrai
instead of  the expected :
  Update MyBase Set  Show = True

The IIS ASP interpreter translate the Boolean value True in his french
equivalent Vrai , and the resulting string is not recognise by my Access
database  who expected the True value.

How can I tell IIS to interpret the True/False value with it's english
equivalent while keeping my system interface in french?

Thank's for your help.

Hi proger,

I'm not too sure of how to do this, so this isn't really an answer to your question as a possible workaround. Is it possible to substitute 1 instead of True?

Hi Zyloch,

This workaround work fine (I have tried it), but I have a lot of code already on the IIS server and the good solution wil be to have IIS to behave properly.

Thanks

have you tried adjusting the asp page directive?

<% @ LANGUAGE=VBScript CODEPAGE=1252 %>

or any of the other page directives? codepage, lcid, language, etc.

Mt final solution has been to put this code in the global.asa file at the root directory of my site.

<SCRIPT LANGUAGE=VBScript RUNAT=Server>
Sub Session_OnStart
  Session.LCID=4105
End Sub
</SCRIPT>
