For some elements, the abundance difference could be real. We address the issue by observing 2 solar-type dwarfs in NGC 5822 and 3 in IC 4756, and comparing their composition with that of 3 giants in either of the aforementioned clusters. We determine iron abundance and stellar parameters for dwarf stars. Then, abundances of calcium, sodium, nickel, titanium, aluminium, chromium, and silicon were determined for both giants and dwarfs. The standard equivalent width analysis was performed differentially with respect to the Sun. We find an iron abundance for dwarf stars equal to solar to within the margins of error for IC 4756, and slightly above for NGC 5822 ([Fe/H]=0.01 and 0.05dex respectively). We show that, for sodium, silicon, and titanium, abundances of giants are significantly higher than those of the dwarfs of the same cluster (about 0.15, 0.15, and 0.35dex). Other elements may also undergo some enhanced, but all within 0.1dex. Description: The table contains equivalent width measurements for each individual line of the adopted line list, and the corresponding abundance measurement. The data analysed consist of UVES@VLT spectra of 5 dwarf and 6 giants members of NGC 5822 and IC 4756. The resolution is of about R=100000 in the red arm, which covers the range from 4800 to 6800Å, which include all the lines analysed. The S/N is of about 100 for dwarfs, about 60 only for TATM 11003, and about 150 for giants. File Summary:
