Hello all,

I have created several db with character set of utf8 for multilanguage
support,but from yesterday that i creat a new db ,i set character set
in Mysql Administrator to utf8 and utf8_general_ci but when i want
type persian i receive error 1366 ,when i see table options in Mysql

Administrator it is ok and is on utf8, but i try change the "NOT NULL"
and that in the box of Execute there is this message:

ALTER TABLE `testi`.`tbtest` MODIFY COLUMN `title` VARCHAR(45) CHARACTER SET

latin1 COLLATE latin1_swedish_ci;

so it seems that character set is locked to above (SWedish),is there any
solution?
Thanks

Well query browser has issues when concatenating queries together with static strings because of weird bug I am still working with the devs on, the workaround is to look at your static portions of the query and run a convert on them to make them UTF8 explicitly.

Please check the following:

CREATE DATABASE db_name CHARACTER SET utf8 COLLATE utf8_general_ci;
