I recently updated to a new version of mysql, from 5.5.28 to 6.3.7 I am trying to import some updated text data into a field with VARCHAR(3000) as the datatype, which I have done before successfully, and am receiving an error I have never seen before. I am not sure how to handle, and am hoping someone there can help?

The error code is 1300: Invalid utf8 character string.

I checked the table I am trying to load data into, and it has "latin 1-default collation" as the collation but it seems that at the field level it is utf8.
