We need to know how the data was received. If via a file what code page is it.

If via a web interface how is your Apache config set up.

How did it get into the file and what code page s the file - etc. etc.

Clearly some translation is taking place or you would get different patterns and not just x'070707'.

Hi everyone
Before I forget - we are on V7r1

Our system receives orders that sometimes contains "foreign" characters - chines etc., Arabic
Looking at the data in hexadecimal, it seems to be consistently 070707, but never in the same place or length
Is there any way (via SQL) to look for these characters within the string?
