I tried the following.


from alembic import op

    # Convert character set to utf8
    for table in op.execute("SHOW TABLES"):
        print tables
        op.execute("alter table " + table + " convert to character set utf8 collate utf8_general_ci")

throws the following error:
TypeError: 'NoneType' object is not iterable

I also tried

    tables = op.execute("SHOW TABLES")
    for table in tables():
        print tables
        op.execute("alter table " + table + " convert to character set utf8 collate utf8_general_ci")

throws the following error:
TypeError: 'NoneType' object is not callable
