But when being read in V7R1M0 this CRLF is being consider as
character.

The two characters representing both a <CR> and a <LF> are indeed "characters"; albeit control characters. Every release will have the database /read/ method including all control characters, converted according to character translation requirements.

If the v5r4 database read had no issue, and presumably never passed those characters in the buffer, then the characters were probably not there. Thus, very likely, the means chosen to have "converted some data from text file to PF file" is not operating the same as in the past.

Can you please let us know how to avoid this?

Strip the CRLF before placing the [other] data in the PF, or ignore the CRLF that is being read from the PF. That is the same as always; i.e. the OS database has never operated differently in that regard, across every release.

Attaching sample data where we face issue.

Attachments [at least non-text and non-".txt" extension] are stripped from the email list and via NNTP. The scenario must be described wholly within the text of the email, or with redirection to a public area for viewing; e.g. with a URL to some HTML.
