Hi everybody. Do not scold for my English.
I'm using filegdb api v1.4. and have such problem with sql query.
SQL query for example: "SELECT * FROM City WHERE UPPER(TITLE_ENG) LIKE '%KIEV%' " - this is work
SQL query for example: "SELECT * FROM City WHERE UPPER(TITLE_RU) LIKE '%КИЕВ%' " - this isn't work.
1) that function "UPPER" and "LOWER" won't work with the text contains Cyrrilic symbols. I tried to use "collate" but it didn't work.
2) that SQL query works in ArcMap
Are anybody knows how to decide this problem with Cyrillic symbols!
Interesting problem... a lot of the web links suggest converting to Unicode first prior to using upper or lower, however, I don't know about sql, but see this python example
I think this method should not help! The word which must be founded I can do anything, but ho do like that
"SEARCH * FROM CITY WHERE UPPER(Encoding.UNICODE(TITLE)) = UPPER("SEARCHED_TEXT")"
well, I am not worried about the query now, since that is the end goal, and not the root of the problem.
I will leave this for others to ponder so they can answer your question directly
Pay attention to the equality checks and the type tests
>>> a = "КИЕВ" >>> b = a.decode('utf-8') >>> type(a) <type 'str'> >>> type(b) <type 'unicode'> >>> print(a) КИЕВ >>> print(b) КИЕВ >>> a == b # ????? True >>> c = "KIEV" >>> type(c) <type 'str'> >>> a == c # ????? False >>> b == c # ?????? False
