Luis PérezSoftware Architect in .NetCommented:
In your string
cmd.CommandText = "INSERT INTO UNNAMED (" & kolona & ") VALUES (format)"
You must write
cmd.CommandText = "INSERT INTO UNNAMED (" & kolona & ") VALUES (" & format & ")"

Try this. Hope that helps.

try boolean value

  Dim blval As Boolean
        blval = True
 cmd.CommandText = "INSERT INTO UNNAMED (" & kolona & ") VALUES (" blval ")"

or Int16
  Dim blval As Int16
        blval = 1
 cmd.CommandText = "INSERT INTO UNNAMED (" & kolona & ") VALUES (" blval ")"

odbc driver is topspeed odbc since amsaving to tps db but their odbc is same as standard odbc so strictly stating to it that its tinyint would should work i think
