I'm a bit confused (admittedly easily done) by this chain of notes. CCSID 1122 (EBCDIC Estonian) is not identical to CCSID 37 (EBCDIC USA/Canada). The Latin capital A with umlaut/diaeresis (Ä) for instance is x'63' in CCSID 37 and x'7B' in CCSID 1122. And neither CCSID would use a value of x'0A' or x'24', as was suggested in earlier notes, to represent Ä. Can you provide the input value on the PC, the value initially received in the iSeries application, the value you want to receive, the default job CCSID of the receiving job, and who (what utility, application, etc) is providing the ASCII to EBCDIC conversion for the Ä. Values such as x'0A' and x'24' suggest some form of round trip substitution is being performed, but with the CCSIDs you mention there should be no need for such an operation (the Ä exists in both CCSIDs), or various control sequences are being inserted into the data. In either case there's something going on that we need additional information about in order to understand what you're seeing.

So all bytes are left unchanged when applying this conversion.
