c# and MySQL select string from db and utf-8 table

that the code i use to create Connection with the datebase

private static string MySqlUsername, MySqlPassword, MySqlDatabase, MySqlHost;
        private static string ConnectionString;
        public static void CreateConnection(string user, string password, string database, string host)
            MySqlUsername = user;
            MySqlHost = host;
            MySqlPassword = password;
            MySqlDatabase = database;
            ConnectionString = "Server=" + MySqlHost + ";Database='" + MySqlDatabase + "';Username='" + MySqlUsername + "';Password='" + MySqlPassword + "';Pooling=true; Max Pool Size = 160000; Min Pool Size = 0;CHARSET=utf8";
        public static MySql.Data.MySqlClient.MySqlConnection MySqlConnection
                MySql.Data.MySqlClient.MySqlConnection conn = new MySql.Data.MySqlClient.MySqlConnection();
                conn.ConnectionString = ConnectionString;
                return conn;

my problem is when i select string from utf-8 datebase with that code

public void accf()
            MySqlCommand cmd = new MySqlCommand(MySqlCommandType.SELECT);
            cmd.Select("med").Where("Name", MName.Text).Or("UID", MUID.Text).Execute();
            MySqlReader r = new MySqlReader(cmd);
            if (r.Read())
                CharName.Text = r.ReadString("Name");
                fnf.ForeColor = Color.Red;
                fnf.Text = "can't found anything";
                fnf.Visible = true;

whatever the string at Name was number it can read it but when it was anyname the program told me that can't found anything and here is the table

  `Name` varchar(16) CHARACTER SET utf8 NOT NULL,
  `UID` bigint(18) unsigned NOT NULL,
  `Substance` varchar(45) CHARACTER SET utf8 NOT NULL,
  `Expiry` date DEFAULT NULL,
  `Type` tinyint(5) unsigned DEFAULT '10',
  `Note` varchar(18) DEFAULT NULL,

sorry for bad English i hope that can help to solve my problem


You could try ExecuteScalar() instead of Execute() in case your table is returning more than one row.
