Hi All, 

I have recently upgraded my emulation software to Client Access (windows
95), from the NetSoft Elite/400 product. I am trying to download a file
from the AS/400 that I created using query. In this file I have a character
result field that was created by concatenating 2 numeric fields using the
"digits" function of query. This field is indeed a "CHAR" field on the
AS/400 file that query creates. When downloading, however, Client Access
views this field as type "HEX", and brings down each byte in it's hex
notation (i.e., "1" comes down as "F1"). NetSoft Elite/400 on the other
hand views this field as the "CHAR" field that it is, downloading it
properly. Has anyone come across this situation?  Is there a workaround or
PTF available?
