This is your problem. Charset "NONE" means that the database doesn't
know about the acutal charset you used to populate it. As a result, the
UPPER function only works for ASCII-Characters and not for the German
You should never create a Database with Charset NONE unless you only
want to store character data as-is without the Database caring about the
actual contents.
Go here:
and look at the example on the bottom.
Unfortuately if you want to convert the data you already have in your
database you will have to "pump" everything over to a newly created
database with a default charset.
