Hi Luis
The printer file was compiled with the correct code page (chrid) - 695 1140 which is supposed to be the US version that includes the euro sign

We ran the program in a 5250 session with this chrid, and can see the euro sign on the spool file - but the euro sign will NOT print

Did you change your printer file (either by recompiling or with an OVRPRTF)?

My test was quite simple:

1) Created a new 5250 session with 1145 as a code page (in my case, that means Latin America (Spanish) with an Euro sign),

2) Created (using the new 5250 session) a small RPG program with a program described file, with several e)uros symbols as an output.

3) Ran the program. It printed a strange character (not an euo sign)


5) Ran the program again, Euro printed ok.
