Hello there,

I have this query with WHERE clause which when I run in mssql studio 2008 does not return any record for utf-8 character. Any idea what is wrong.

cheers

SELECT
        count(dbo.county.id) 
    FROM
        dbo.county 
    LEFT OUTER JOIN
        dbo.province 
            ON (
                dbo.county.provinceID = dbo.province.id
            ) 
    LEFT OUTER JOIN
        dbo.district 
            ON (
                dbo.county.id = dbo.district.countyID
            ) 
    LEFT OUTER JOIN
        dbo.city 
            ON (
                dbo.district.id = dbo.city.districtID
            ) 
    LEFT OUTER JOIN
        dbo.zone 
            ON (
                dbo.city.id = dbo.zone.cityId
            ) 
    LEFT OUTER JOIN
        dbo.neighbourhood 
            ON (
                dbo.zone.id = dbo.neighbourhood.zoneId
            ) 
    LEFT OUTER JOIN
        dbo.customer

I guess you used this one, correct?
