FireDAC has mySQL support - to the platforms where mySQL is available. So if you for some reason what to store data temp. on your "mobile" device - where the mySQL server is not running - you can use IB, SQLLite or some briefcase model. http://docwiki.embarcadero.com/RADStudio/XE5/en/Connect_to_MySQL_Server_(FireDAC) I guess on...

Hi, Would this be helpful: http://docwiki.embarcadero.com/RADStudio/XE6/en/UTF-8_Conversion_Routines So you are sure your text is encode in utf-8, and unicode is not an encoding but a character set.
