UTF8 issue when querying mysql DB

Hi all,

currently I'm facing an issue with (german) UTF8 characters not being displayed correctly. My app pulls

data from MS-SQL (works as expected) and from mysql (borking up the german mutated vowels), both using ODBC.

I am aware of  several post in this forum discussing similar issues.

So far I have tried:

- setting character set in ODBC settings

- using convert (field, latin1)

- using COLLATE statement in SQL

none of these steps worked out so far.

I'd highly aprreciate any hint you guys could provide on how to fix this issue.

Thanks in advance,
