thanks for your answer.
I think that passing through a temporary field by filling it with a cast to octets of the original field has the same effect that assuming that the original field had been filled with ISO8859_1 character set.
See my answer to Raffaele.

This will only change the metadata of that field. It will not check if
the data really is ISO8859_1. When *you* are sure about that, it
shouldn't be a problem.
