 AddNew with a GUID - can't get back the GUID

Using SQL7 I have a table with a GUID as the key and I need to get back the
value of the GUID immediately after I add a new record. It tells me the
value is {00000.........}, even though if I look in the database my new
record does have a proper GUID value. I am using a dynamic server sided
cursor. Does anyone know how to get the value back?

 AddNew with a GUID - can't get back the GUID
In my test, I am using server side keyset cursor. The Guid field returns
the correct value after Update is called. Below is the code snippet I

    Dim cn As ADODB.Connection
    Dim rs As ADODB.Recordset
    Dim cm As ADODB.Command

    Set cn = New ADODB.Connection
    With cn
        .ConnectionString = "Provider=SQLOLEDB.1;Integrated
Security=SSPI;Initial Catalog=test;Data Source=(local)"
    End With

    Set rs = New ADODB.Recordset
    rs.CursorLocation = adUseServer
    rs.CursorType = adOpenKeyset

    rs.Open "select id, gid from guidtest", cn, , adLockOptimistic

    Debug.Print rs.Fields("gid").Value, rs.Fields("id")

    rs.Fields("id") = 4

    Debug.Print rs.Fields("gid").Value, rs.Fields("id")

My platform: ADO 2.5, SQL Server 7. Windows 2000 server. gid is a GUID
field with Default Value equals to (newid()).
