Dear all,

I cant get any result set back, when issuing a simple Select statement through VB.Net and MYSql Data provider, to a Mysql table searching for some Greek string.
MYSQL Ver:5.5.32
VB.Net: 2010

Do I need any special encoding for the passed string?


You will have to post your code if you would like us to debug it, friend.

If you go to the Web Development > Databases > MySql forum you may get someone who knows MySQL (Why Databases is under web development I don't get, it should be out on it's own category)

If it was Microsoft SQL server, I'd check that the collation I was using supported Greek characters, what the equivalent is in MySQL I don't know.
