Hello Vuong,

I'd guess that the CPYSPLF command has CTLCHAR(*FCFC) specified.  That will put 
ANSI forms control characters 
into the first byte of the record.  Ensure CTLCHAR(*NONE) is specified.

The data in the file looks like the printed hex representation and appears 
successfully converted to ASCII.  
How are you creating the original report?

Regards,
Simon Coulter.
