Re: Data files with nondisplayable characters Update


Hi Gary,

It sounds like the source members contain ASCII data instead of EBCDIC.

If you have DBU, use it to look at one of the source members and display a record in hex. If blanks are showing as x'20' instead of x'40', then it's ASCII.

Whooo. What a scare. I tried editing members from a regular telnet Client Access
Express for Windows and it works fine.

I don't understand why I would see this problem from the console though.
