I cannot save Arabic description in powerbuilder 10.5 with MySQL 5.6. I have already done the same with SQLAnywhere 9 and 10 and there was no problem occurred.I think the problem is with Powerbuilder with MySQL.Please help
You need to specify that you are using Unicode characters in your columns. Normally, most DBMS specify this as data type NvarChar or NChar. In MySQL though, you would use either:
VARCHAR(n) CHARSET utf8
VARCHAR(n) CHARSET ucs2
PS: the default character set if you don't specify it is ANSI. Thus, no Arabic support as you need the "extended" character set.

What do you mean with "Arabic decription"? Do you want to store Arabic data in the database?
What character set do you use in the database? ( http://stackoverflow.com/questions/6859018/save-data-in-arabic-in-mysql-database )
