Your documentation does not contain the syntaxes to set / change the character set of a table of field, yet.

How to repeat:

The documentation is being developed but is not quite ready for inclusion in the manual.

Thanks for your quick answer.
I don't know, how you usually work with this tracker, but shouldn't this item remain open untill the "bug" is "fixed"?

I must agree with Alexander here - it's not closed yet. Reset Status to "Suspended" until it's fixed.

Thank you for your bug report. This issue has been addressed in the
documentation. The updated documentation will appear on our website
shortly, and will be included in the next release of the relevant

Character set documentation has been added to the manual now.
