when I get special characters from the mysql nodes they get mangled up like ñ becomes Ã± …
For the moment I am suing a conversion table with Substitute, but how to deal with this kind of characters?
just installed mysql 5.5.28, created a database, inserted some ‘höäüßñññ’ stuff with mysql workbench and vvvv. a subsequent sql select returned those values just fine.
does it help if you play around with the “Unicode=True/False” and “Charset=latin1/utf8/…” settings of the connection string input of the mysql database node?
will do the trick, should definitely go into the help patch
