Thanks for that, Bruce.  But here's what I'm doing.  I'm writing a Java
application which reads and writes data queues using the toolbox
classes.  In the testing I'm doing at the moment, I changed my job CCSID
to 500 and sent a data queue entry with some data from outside the
invariant character set.  In my Java class I used an AS400Text object to
convert the received data to a Java format.

If I created the AS400Text object without specifying a CCSID, the data
came through correctly.  If I created it with a CCSID of 500, the data
was garbled.  This is exactly the opposite of what I had expected.  Even
though the data queue has no CCSID associated with it, surely the data I
wrote would be encoded in the appropriate code page for the sending job?
So the data would "have" CCSID 500, even if it didn't know it?

I'm clearly misunderstanding something here.

Let me know if you think I should take this to JAVA400-L.  However, I
think it's a general data queue and CCSID question, rather than
specifically a Java one.
