What would cause this to stop working?

What would cause this to stop working?

(OP)
Hi,

For some reason the following SQL query doesn't want to work any more (its part of an existing program, and has worked on a million other sites);

CODE --> sql

SELECT * FROM Category WHERE Full_Name LIKE "Comercios/_pticas" 

The Full_Name it should be matching has:

Comercios/Ópticas

Any ideas why this wouldn't be working?

TIA!

Andy

RE: What would cause this to stop working?

The letter Ó makes the problem. Try
SELECT * FROM Category WHERE Full_Name LIKE "Comercios/$pticas"

RE: What would cause this to stop working?

I meant:
SELECT * FROM Category WHERE Full_Name LIKE "Comercios/%pticas"

RE: What would cause this to stop working?

set the connection to use utf8,for diacritic insensitive comparisons

CODE

set names 'UTF8'

@ljzagorac - The reason I'm using _ and not %, is I only want it to match 1 character (where as % will match more than 1)

@jpadie - Thanks. It actually turned out to be an encoding issue when creating his SQL data.

Cheers

Andy
