Hi to everyone, I've a problem with symbols and my application. There are 4 fields defined as string which receive a symbol from code: 1. stato (status) 2. fase (phase) 3. spedizione (shipment) 4. pagamento (payment) Well, only the status field shows a weird behaviour. There is only one point, so far, in the source where I assign a value to that field and the code I wrote is: def conferma @order = Order.find(session[:ordine]) @order.stato = :confermato @order.save! empty_cart end Now, when I read back the order for display purposes, when the field "stato" is displayed, something like: "--- :value" is shown. This thing doesn't happen to the rest above mentioned fields. Here follows the migration stuff: create_table :orders do |t| t.column :user_id, :integer t.column :user_ip, :string t.column :created_at, :timestamp t.column :updated_at, :timestamp t.column :stato, :string, :default => 'aperto' t.column :fase, :string t.column :spedizione, :string, :default => 'pacco1' t.column :pagamento, :string, :default => 'bonifico' t.column :indirizzo, :string t.column :civico, :integer t.column :cap, :integer t.column :comune, :string t.column :provincia, :string t.column :telefono, :string t.column :email, :string t.column :note, :string end Is there anything I could check to fix this thing? I've tried with grep on the whole source tree to find a possible flaw in the source code. Still, no luck. Thanks in advance for your help.

Nevermind, just figured out that a simple "serialize(attribute_name)" in the class solved the problem. Thanks anyway.
