Hello Dan,

Do you know what charset your MySQL columns are using? By default, the JDBC input will assume it's utf-8. If I remember correctly, you can use SHOW FULL COLUMNS FROM mytable to get that information.

With that information you can configure the input with charset or columns charset, there is more details at
