Aarrggh! Now what?

Hi Phil. CCSID 37 on the AS/400 maps to ISO-8859-1 (CCSID 819) on the client; their character set (697) doesn't contain the Euro.

As far as I can tell, CCSID 1140 on the AS/400 is the equivalent of CCSID 37 with the Euro, and would map to ISO-8859-15 (CCSID 923) on the client. However, tn5250 doesn't support CCSID 1140.

I sounds like you need to switch back to ISO-8859-1.
