Hello,
I have a MySql database on a 1and1 server.

I wish to update a field tinyint(1) which defaults to NULL.

I use phpmyadmin
From Browse I go into the edit form and update the field with a tick box.

When I look at the record  via Browse the field is still at NULL.

If I go back into Edit Mode the tick box is still ticked.

Has anyone any idea how this can be rectified please?
Many thanks

John

Hi.

I guess when you change the table structure and the field still accepts null you must update all records with a number from [0..9] (tinyint(1))

Could you show a screenshot of the tick box you are talking?

I am not sure if the edit form is a normal part of phpmyadmin I expect it is.

I am attaching a shot of the edit / update form

Uncheck that box if it's the NULL checkbox, it sets the default for the filed to null.

If you want to disable null values for that records you have to untick the box and write default values in the record or make a massive update to 1 or something in all rows for that 2 columns (frontpageshow / imageshow )
