• Subject: CCSID 65535 Translation in Client Access Transfer Requests

Can someone out there please clarify this CCSID stuff for me? Here's the

We have a computer that sits in the background and does nothing but file
transfers between our Novell/NT servers and the 400's. We starting moving away
from the DOS version of Client Access in favor of the Windows 9x/NT version. I
came across a nuance that reared its head in the Windows version where the file
was all in HEX on the NT server pafter a download]. I tracked it down to the
CCSID translation parameter that appears to reside at the ODBC configuration
level of the PC as well as at the Transfer Request level. I can't seem to make
the setting "stick" such that I can put this matter to bed. The other
alternative is to try and address the files that are created on the 400's to
make sure that they use CCSID 37 [as they will with a normal DDS file].

I'm sure anyone that's dealt with this stuff knows what I'm talking about and
doesn't likely need any more explanation. Any ideas, comments, or suggestions
would be greatly appreciated.
