Hello everyone,

A column in my table, "age", is set to tinytext as the data type. A hyphen is being passed through from the PHP script to the table, indicating a range of ages (18-35, 36-55, 55+), but what is written into the table replaces the hyphen with a couple of different, odd characters. It looks like this: 18–35. How can I change the structure of the table in phpMyAdmin to not alter the hyphen or the + sign when and if that is what is being written into the database?
