View Full Version : Opposite of SET NAMES?

06-30-2011, 07:16 PM
I am trying to get MySQL to use another charset instead of UTF-8 or latin1.

I've discovered the SET NAMES <charset name>; command, but it only seems to recognise utf8 and latin1.

Is there a command like "GET NAMES" to tell me which names are settable? I'm struggling to find one!
