    Unanswered: Character set problem

    Hello all . . .

    I have create a database in MySQL that storing data in Greek Language.

    When I'm using the MySQL Tools (MySQL Dos Console, MySQL Query Builder) to retrive the data then i can read them correctly.

    When i load the data to VB.NET instead of greek characters i'm getting back question marks (?)

    What can i do for that ? ? ?

    Thanks a lot . . .

    Your character set in your html is incorrect.

    I don't use HTML. I use VB.NET. So, no characterset of html must be set.

    In any case i thank you.

    The problem solved . . .

    ...and what solution did you find.. it helps if you can identify what you did to resolve your problem so that others in the same circumstances can get some help...
    I'd rather be riding on the Tiger 800 or the Norton

    VB.net is a component part that can be used in web design/applications, thus my assumption. Oops. Hehe! Indeed we would be most interested to see what your solution was. I suspect the data was not stored in binary or a particular character set, thus was being inserted as "?????". I can only hypothesise of course...

    Is a console application and I'm getting back only question marks.

    The database columns are in correct character set.
