Subject Problems with chars like á é ó, etc charset problem?
Author Fabio Gomes
My firebird database is using 8859-1 charset, but when i do a WHERE with
something like:

WHERE name LIKE '%cássia%'

It gives me this error:

arithmetic exception, numeric overflow, or string truncation Cannot
transliterate character between character sets

Whats the problem? and how can i fix it?

I m using firebird 1.5, with dialect 3 and running the query using php.

And the field that gives me this error is VARCHAR(50) ISO8859_1

Thanx in advance for any help.
