MySQL Error 1366

I am a real rookie on MySQL (migrating from MS/ACCESS 2013). I need to export an old table from ms/access to ms/excel and saving it as CSV in order to import to MySQL.

The database is set with a single table (this table), to be imported. It looks alright, but I am consistently getting the error on import when there are special characters such as [ó] [á] to [ã]. The error is: "1366 Incorrect string value: ' ...' for column.."

My SQL statement is:

load data local infile '/Users/jlsp/Dropbox/md/AD/GuineBissau/eleicoes GNB/11 BDDE Lc/BDDE_01/T_21_Delegados59Migra.csv'
into table Militantes
character set utf8
 fields terminated by ';'
 enclosed by '"'
 lines terminated by '\r'
      (Mil_Estatuto, Mil_Organismo, Mil_Regiao, Mil_Sector, Mil_Numero,
      Mil_Orgao, Mil_Nome, Mil_Sexo, Mil_Cargo, Mil_Observacoes, Mil_Fonetica, Mil_OutroNome, Mil_Telefone1, Mil_Telefone2)

all records are imported but, for every column, the character after the accented character are not inputted to the column
can anyone hope?

We all hope :)

Please post some sample lines from your csv and your CREATE TABLE statement so we can test.

Thanks,
Dan

The CSV is attached. I do not have a create (I have used the workbench) but I have the following statement:

ALTER DATABASE MySQL
  DEFAULT CHARACTER SET utf8
  DEFAULT COLLATE utf8_general_ci;

which was successfully executed.

After posing the question, I have managed to sort out by changing to "latin1" the UFT8 specification on the "load data file". Now my front end is a mess changing all characters.

As I do not understand the issue I do not know what to do

Since you told MySQL that the fields are enclosed by "", maybe enclosing them will help.
See attached.
If not, I'm going to need the table structure, cause you have 41 fields in your csv and importing 14 into your table.
FWIW, in Excel I could correctly import your csv using latin3, while UTF-8 produced errors.

I am sorry. Sent you the wrong file! Anyway, as I told in my previous message the problem looked to be sorted when I used "latin1" and the front end (MySQL workbench) looked perfect. The data is there and all accented characters are perfect.

But on my application front ente (I am using LiveCode), it shows wrong and weird characters... And, because I do not really understand the picture, I do not know what to do on the front-end side to sort out the problem.

Do you think that by enclosing on "" will solve?

Nope. If it looks good on Workbench, then the data imported correctly.

When presenting the same data, you need to use the same encoding, to avoid character misrepresentation.

so which commend shall I send to mySQL to query the data in the proper manner? Or is this a problem with LiveCode?

The only command to query is SELECT.

Mysql will send the data, then it's the application's job to interpret it.

Ok.
I am closing the question. It is not MySQL anymore, and hope that someone in experts exchange can help me on live code/runrev....

went there an it looks pretty easy. My database has a single table and in order to be able to import I had to use the "latin1".

So now this table is latin1. How do I change the whole table to UFT8?

Try creating a new table with UTF-8 collation and then INSERT SELECT from your original table.
Don't know if it will work properly, but it's worth a try.

You can try that too. Just on a copy of the table, so you don't need to import your data again.

nope. same problem. but when I edit the field in the LiveCode grid and put a right character it accepts. It looks that this is a presentation problem on the LiveCode grid...
