Problems with utf8 characters when migrating from SQL Expres 2008

I have a problem when trying to migrate a database from MS Express 2008 to MySql 5.5.

I use the migration-tool in MySql Workbench (newest version) and all the schema creation and mapping is working perfectly. But when it comes to bulk-copy, the data inserted is not converted to utf8, and that results in strings that are "cut off" when a danish Æ-Ø-Å is encountered.

When i run the wizard and it comes to "Manual Editing" it says under "Migration Message": Collation Danish_Norwegian_CI_AS migrated to utf8_general_ci. SO i dont understand, why it is not working?

I have tried the migration-tool in SQLyog, and it handles the conversion as expected, but i really dont want to pay for it :)

How can i make it convert the strings correctly?

Some help or guidance would be really helpfull.

Regards, Morten
