Thanks for your reply John
We know where this data is coming from and why
That is being worked on to rectify that situation
Now I need to locate where this particular data is, now that it is on the AS/400

Subject: Re: How to recognize "foreign" characters

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?
