First of all, is this a real date field, a character field or a numeric

Often the reasons character fields come across as hex is because there's
an option to translate data with a 65535 CCSID you will probably need to
turn on. Hunt around for that. This is a default CCSID that many of us
stopped using years ago. Us lily white boys here in the states often use
a CCSID of 37. If you are dealing with multiple languages you may use
something different.

Hi,

The user seemed to complain of this first, but when I check I to data
transfer a file from iseries to display or file, the date appear
F0F961F0F261F1F9F2F5.

I assumed its something to with IBM iseries access for windows (she was
using V5R4), so had her install V6R1 IBM i series access for windows.
We use V6R1 operating system.

Is there a PTF or software update that's required to fix this?

Regards,
Vik.
