Thinking about your problem a little more it seems you need to ensure
the correct EBCDIC to ASCII conversion is being done for all of your
data, not just your terminating character, unless you can guarantee
your records only contain invariant characters.  When FTPing using the
AS/400 as a client you can control the tables used in the conversion
process with parms on the FTP command (CCSID or TBLFTPOUT and/or
TBLFTPIN), when another client is used I do not know how you control 
the tables.  As far as the # character, it is not invarient and you may
run into problems depending on your environment.  Again, I would
recommend researching a method to control the conversion process so
that all of your data is converted correctly.

Hope this helps,
John Dorn
