Unable to pass boolean value to database

Hi!
I'm using vbscript in an HTML page to append a record to a database.  One of the fields on the form is a checkbox and I use the following form validation:

form18 = main.TUSER.value
If main.TUSER.Checked Then
         form18 = "YES"
      Else
      form18 = "NO"
      End If

I know the 'if statment' works because it populates the correct information in an alert box... However, I get 'data type mismatch in criteria expression' error upon appending a record.   I've checked the db and the field is set up as boolean.  Yes/no's actually show in the field in the database instead of checkboxes.  Is there another setting that I may be missing?  I've assigned a 500 point value due to urgency.  Thank you!

yes despite what value is displayed. true/false is the value stored...

I wound up using -1/0 as suggested... didn't like the T/F.  Thank you for the solution!
