Re: Query to identify EBCDIC Printable characters



fixed

So that would consider x'41', x'42' etc as printable characters, but they
do not show up as anything in the ebcdic table.

Not sure how you are going to inspect each character position
of each field.

But the following works for a single character field:

SELECT * FROM somlib/afile
WHERE onechar < (X'40')
OR onechar > (X'FE')

Subject: Query to identify EBCDIC Printable characters

Hi,

I want to use Query or SEQUEL (cannot run SQL on production box), to
identify any records in a file, that have fields with non-printable
characters.

Without having to define every printable character I see in the EBCDIC
table in my query, what would be the best way to do this?

Thanks
Vinay
