    Iso8859_1


    Hi,

    the last two relaises of Firebird seems to have problems
    with ISO8859_1 (e.g german characters).
    Even when I try to get data with VBScript (simplest way) - there are no ""s & ""s.
    Has anyone an idea? Thank you very much...

    Hi!

    I have problems, too.

    With JDBC, I want to create tables with columnames witch
    contains german umlauts ().

    It worked fine with Firebird 1.0.3 but not with Version 1.5!

    Do I have to activate the ISO8859_1 support?

    Thanks for your help!

    As far as I know, the object names only accept plain ASCII.

    However, for data, you have to make sure you connect with the given characterset as well.

    Hi barbibulle

    Does that work, too:
    CREATE TABLE test (aa VARCHAR(50))

    I tried it over JDBC without success!
