Question Pronouns - direct and indirect objects

Hi I have two sentences, one affirmative, one negative regarding pronouns that are confusing me totally can anyone help.

The question for the first one is:

1. Le has dicho a Roberto la verdad?

The affirmative answer we have been given using pronouns is

1. Si ya se lo he dicho.

In the negative the question is the same:

2. Le has dicho a Roberto la verdad?

The negative answer we have been given is

2. No voy a decirsela

Can anyone explain why the direct object pronoun changes from a "lo" to a "la" between the affirmative sentence and negative sentence.

We have another sentence with the same problem.
