Sorry, I should have suggested the %char() bif instead...

Really? For UCS-2 to SBCS? Sucks for whoever has to try to map that table...

If I'm not completely lost with this thread, I wonder why the OP can't use the %UCS2() bif to do this conversion before putting bytes into his display file?

So far, nothing easy is jumping out at me. Still searching the IBM site.

Table look-up is easy. It's just really, really, tedious and
error-prone, when you're initially generating the tables.
