Thanks for that tip. It’s one I never have heard about. I’ll try this next time I need to read UTF8 from my db.

I had the same problems a while ago, but got it sorted with the following.
*Before* you do any interactions with the db, add this line.
*revExecuteSQL MyConnectionID, "SET NAMES 'utf8'"*
"SET NAMES 'utf8'" is needed whenever you want to send/retrieve data
to/from the server having characters that cannot be represented in pure
ASCII, like 'ñ' or 'ö'.
Then retrieve the data
*put textDecode("SELECT * FROM MyTable","UTF-8") into fld "MyField"*
My software never has bugs. It just develops random features.
