I have and asp update page with a form.  All the fields are fine, but none of the checkboxes return checked even if they are TRUE (bit) in the db.  Below is my code to check the box if TRUE (and yes, I have tried 1 as well):

<input <%If (CStr((Recordset1.Fields.Item("forms").Value)) = CStr("TRUE")) Then Response.Write("checked=""checked""") : Response.Write("")%> type="checkbox" name="forms" value="1" />

How do I have the checkboxes checked if they are true in the db?

print out value of CStr((Recordset1.Fields.Item("forms").Value)) to check first.
to see what is it look like for both True/False

Since value of boolean on ASP is vary, some become 0/1, or 0/-1,  or True/False  or Yes/No
You need to code it accordingly when read it from database.

I have broken it up to make it more readable:

<input type="checkbox"
<%
If (CStr((Recordset1.Fields.Item("forms").Value)) = CStr("TRUE")) Then Response.Write("checked=""yes""")
%>
  name="forms"  />

<input id="Checkbox1" type="checkbox"
<%
If (CStr((Recordset1.Fields.Item("forms").Value)) = CStr("TRUE")) Then
  Response.Write("checked")
End If
%>
/>

and to set checkbox value, just Response.Write(" checked ") is enough.
