I have a iPhone app called "Mina utgfter" where i put in data about my expenses.
From this app I export a csv file that I import to mysql database.
All is working just fine exept that when I have a swedish character in the csv file it will not be added in to the db and noting after that as well.
Ex: If i stand in csv file "Lönutrdag" only "L" will be added to db.
I know it has to do with utf-8 format but I can not get it to work.
The only solution i found so far is to open the csv file in notepad, take save as and save it as utf-8 format. Then everything works fine. But the problem with this is that I do this import from a webpage with asp and my users will import the file from there, so I want to skipp letting my users re-save the file in notepad.
I have tested to change the charset in db to latin swedins and ut-8 swedish but same problem. I tried to use ADODB.STREAM object in vb and open the csv file and save it with charset utf-8, but this resulted in that all the swedisn characters in the scv file became rubbish. I have no way to change format from the iPhone app, its just an export csv without and format options.
Tried to set the CHARACTER SET charset_name (utf-8) in the sql as well but same problem.
If I run the SQL "Load data in file..." in the code below in mysql directly I get same problem, so its not an asp error,
Here is my
<!--#include virtual="/Connections/connectionHome.asp" -->
I solved the problem my self.
1. Uninstalled mySQL from my server.
2. Installed MSSQL Express.
I'm having problems storing Swedish characters in my MySQL database. I want to store them in my table called users with the collation utf8-bin. Even though I'm using utf8, the characters å ä ö gets stored as Ã¥ Ã¤ Ã¶ and I don't know why. Retrieving the data and echoing it gives me the same output, with the weird characters instead of å ä ö.
All of my php documents are coded in UTF-8. I ran mb_detect_encoding() on my string and it returned "UTF-8". My database has UTF-8 as default encoding and my tables are utf8_swedish_ci in collation (i also tried utf8_unicode_ci).
mysql returns no error. In my tables I get the part of the inserted string starting from 0 to the first occurrence of a Swedish char.
I want to write a web application in android and use php to connect with mysql.this app is in Persian. when i connect to mysql only with php, I can see data in Persian(therfore my connection to mysql is true) but when i use this php in android app to connect to mysql, I don't get data in Persian.
UTF-8 all the way through my web application (Apache, MySQL, PHP, …)
I searched in this site there were lots of answers but none of them are working for me. I am trying to parse the below XML using PHP simplexml_load_string.
My XML is: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> <address> <name>Peter</name> <country>Großbritannien</country> </address>
When I print it using print_r the result is showing as below:
SimpleXMLElement Object ( [name] => Peter [country] => GroÃŸbritannien
and when I use ini_set('default_charset', 'UTF-8') or header('Content-Type: text/html; charset=utf-8') the result is:
SimpleXMLElement Object ( [name] => Peter [country] => Großbritannien
But When I try to insert the country value using PHP (with the header set as utf8) in the database (MySQL) then its inserting as GroÃŸbritannien. My tables character-set is UTF8 and collation of the column is utf8_unicode_ci. However when I directly insert the country value into the table(using phpMyAdmin or terminal) then its inserting properly.
I would like to know why the country value is not inserting properly from my PHP parsing page.
If say, you were to set a table field to VARCHAR(5), and the user were to enter a string that is 6 characters long, how would MySQL react? Would it store the first 5 characters and ignore the last 6th character?
In the case that there is NO server side checking of course.
Certain characters don't seemed to be displayed when I echo the data in PHP file. For example, the mdash (—) and the a with a tilde (which is necessary for certain places such as São Paulo). These show up as Is there any way to get them to show normally? I've tried surrounding them with `'s and putting \'s in front of them, but I can't seem to find out how to get them to work.
I have a query where I have a concat nested inside a group concat. The problem I'm having is that the last x amount characters are being cut from the result. for example below at the end of the position column instead of finishing 'Position unknown' it finsihes 'Position'?
+------------------+ | drink_name | +------------------+ | Kiss on the Lips | | Hot Gold | | Lone Tree | [code]...
A query as such, select drink_name from easy_drinks where drink_name BETWEEN 'G' and 'O';
+------------------+ | drink_name | +------------------+ | Kiss on the Lips | | Hot Gold | | Lone Tree | | Greyhound | | Indian Summer | | Lime Fizz | +------------------+
drink names starting with O are not included in the result. But as per the manual page expr BETWEEN min AND max
If expr is greater than or equal to min and expr is less than or equal to max, BETWEEN returns 1, otherwise it returns 0. If expr is greater than or equal to min and expr is less than or equal to max, BETWEEN >returns 1, otherwise it returns 0. I have been through questions that explain the behaviour for Timestamp and Date. What is the reason in this case?
I have done a lot of thing to show the data in the database correctly. I have a device which inserts data into a MySQL DB with PHP scripts. All the data is shown correctly, but the special ones (Ñ, ó,é, etc...). I use JSON between the server and the device.
I have made many changes and these are the things I have got. First of all it only showed a "?" instead of the character (I?aki). Later It showed null for the full field and finally it shows nothing from the special character is written on.I have made the following changes but with no success:In the PHP Scripts:
Besides, in the Database the string fields are in utf8_spanish_ci and the table collation in utf_unicode_ci.
I don't know what else can I do. If I insert a new row in the database I can see it perfectly in phpmyadmin and my device. The problem above happens when the device sends the parameters to the server and I suppose that the php script does not understand the special characters.
Edit: Here is the code for the PHP Script explained above:
I'm running a v bulletin forum, and we've recently migrated servers, moving from MySQL 4.1.22 to 5.0.95 in the process. Tonight I upgraded the v bulletin software from 3.8.4 to 3.8.7. Now I'm getting this odd message on one thread (that I know of)
My Collation appears to be set to latin1_Swedish_ci (the site is English). I'm really stuck with this one as nothing I tried off Google seems to work. I think the problem is down to the random junk in between" 24744, 61387" but I don't know what that is or how to change it.
I manage a website that is on an Apache server running MySQL 5.0.27.My website has a simple search functionality that uses a FULLTEXT search on the MySQL db, and it works fine.The owner of the site wants to be able to search for a minimum of 2 characters (instead of the default 4).It's my understanding that I would have to change the ft_min_word_len setting from 4 to 2 to accomplish this, and then restart the server, and rebuild my FULLTEXT indices.The problem is the website is on a "shared" server, so I'm doubtful my host will make any server-wide changes that would affect any other users.
How/What are my options if my host says they won't change the setting? Are there any other ways to "search" a MySQL database (utilizing PHP) and match a minimum of 2 characters?
I have a DB that has English words. I want users to enter a string of characters and find only words containing those characters. Just like if they were to enter scrabble letters, it would let them know what words they can build off those letters.
Example: User enters "sedal" Then query would return:
i have column " details" in one table. that column stores email contents in HTML format , column data type is blob .my requirement to search and find any email content contains non -english characters ie foreign languages.
I have rows and rows of data in Chinese characters in Excel .xlsx file. I need to import them into MySQL. I tried saving .xlsx as .csv but it the characters explode. Doesn't CSV support UTF-8? I tried changing the font to "Unicode"b
OK, first let me say that I'm testing locally, using MYSQL version 5.1.36
I'm creating a site that is designed to me sort of an internal messaging system much like email but messages will only be able to be sent to other users within the system. I've created a page to insert the message information into the database to be retrieved later and everything works perfectly until I use special characters that might normally be used in a message, such as apostrophes ( ' ). The type of field is set as varchar 20000. This is the only way that I know how to do it as I am learning as I progress. What can I do to get mysql to accept the message, including the special characters that are used?
This is the error that I get when a special character is used:
Notice: Undefined index: grade in C:\wamp\www\insertmsg.php on line 40
You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near 'm going to see if this works.')' at line 1
This is related to php and mysql both. Basically i want to accept all special characters on keyboard, store them in mysql database and display them through php on a webpage.
I have used stripslashes, addslashes, mysql_real_escape_string, etc but i am not sure how to use it in combination since i keep getting issues.
So this is to solve the problem all at once, if i get a correct syntax that can accept all spe. characters on keyboard?
Issue : Basically, i have created an article submission script but my boss seems to be using a hell of special characters in it,so i am tired finding which character is creating the issue and how to solve it. Article wont just display because of that one or some char.
I'm looking for a function or something to remove non-alphanumeric characters from fields in a table. I need to run a comparison between fields in 2 tables, but the data in the fields often contains non-alphanumeric characters. I've been searching this forum (and Google) for a few days now, but only found this, which does not work for me at all, as when I try to enter this code, mysql complains about some syntax error (which to be honest, I can't find as I'm quite new to mysql).
The variable includes special characters and I'm wondering if there is a way to still make it work? Since the variable has special characters, I get a SYNTAX error.
If I use double quotes inside the SQL command line around the variable in PhpMyAdmin, then it works, that's why I'm wondering how I can achieve a similar effect in PHP? Obviously I'm not able to use double quotes as shown below, and single quotes will give a syntax error. Code....
