I have an object (a variable) name, which gets its value from a PostgreSQL database via a SELECT statement, an it sometimes has special characters as ß, ä, ö...
Then I would like to insert that value into a table in a SQLite database. So I make a cursor cur on the table and prepare a SQL statement like this:
sql = 'insert into tbl values(?)'
That ends up with the exception, for example,
UnicodeDecodeError: 'ascii' codec can't decode byte 0xc3 in position 6: ordinal not in range(128)
The "position 6" is exactly the position of the special character, ß in this case. What to do?
