I think you're on the right list.

Methinks it's some sort of CCSID issue. For instance, on a DSPFFD I may
see:
Data Field Buffer Buffer Field Column
Field Type Length Length Position Usage Heading
IID CHAR 2 2 1 Both Rec
ID
IM/IZ
Field text . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . : Record ID (IM/IZ)
Coded Character Set Identifier . . . . . : 37
IPROD Open 35 35 3 Both Item
Number
Field text . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . : Item Number
Coded Character Set Identifier . . . . . : 937
IDESC Open 50 50 38 Both Item
Description
Field text . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . : Item Description
Coded Character Set Identifier . . . . . : 937

Here, I think "Open" would be your type "G", as in graphical. Notice how
they are CCSID 937 where the CHAR field is 37?

I wonder if there is a setting in Excel or the data transfer option to
handle the CCSID.
