(Apache 1.3.20, PHP4.0.6&4.0.4,MSSQL70)

Cannot work with the MSSQL-uniqueidentifier.
e.g. I need to use following select in php:

 select newid() as id;

normally I would get something like this
id="{874E725E-03A0-44C7-BB0B-E52C7EC74B9F}"

but the vars only get cryptical codes like
???g???O??w?ծ ?

UNIQUEIDENTIFYER is an alias for a 16 byte binary and as the support for binary data was changed between 4.0.5 and 4.0.6, the data returned is no longer converted to a readable string.

A new function will be introduced mssql_guid_string() in 4.0.7. This function can convert the binary value to a readable string.

If you dont want the extra call in your code, use this work arround:

select cast(id as varchar(36)) from my table
