To add a boolean column with the default value "False" works:
 
ALTER TABLE `platsonline`.`attribut_lists` 
   ADD COLUMN `B_TEST3` BOOLEAN DEFAULT TRUE NULL

Open in new window


But to change it when its already created?

BOOLEAN fields are synonomous with tinyint(1).  Just set it to 0 or 1.

UPDATE platsonline SET B_Test3=0

will set the field to FALSE.



UPDATE platsonline SET B_Test3=1

will set the field to TRUE.

(Don't forget to add a WHERE clause to set just one row, otherwise these mysql statements will set every row in the table)
