You could try opening a service request as to why it doesn't work in 7.1.

Locate seems to work
This is the sql
with junk as (
select concat(concat('abc', x'070707'), 'defghij') data from
sysibm.sysdummy1
union
select concat(concat('abcde', x'070707'), 'fghij') data from
sysibm.sysdummy1
union
select concat(concat('abcdefg', x'070707'), 'hij') data from
sysibm.sysdummy1
)
select data, hex(data) as Hex_date,
locate(x'07', data) found_at
from junk

Here are the results
DATA HEX_DATE FOUND_AT
abc defghij 81828307070784858687888991 4

I pasted that into Run SQL Scripts. The ONLY change I made was to put
a semicolon at the end.
Worked great.
Tried STRSQL.
Worked great.

Hi Coy
Well I cut and pasted you SQL into STRSQL and here is my results

DATA FOUND_AT
abc defghij 0
abcde fghij 0
abcdefg hij 0

I then slightly changed it
with junk as (
select concat(concat('abc', x'070707'), 'defghij') data from
sysibm.sysdummy1
union
select concat(concat('abcde', x'070707'), 'fghij') data from
sysibm.sysdummy1
union
select concat(concat('abcdefg', x'070707'), 'hij') data from
sysibm.sysdummy1
)
select data, hex(data) as Hex_date,
position(x'070707', data) found_at
from junk

Which displayed the following
DATA HEX_DATE FOUND_AT
abc defghij 81828307070784858687888991 0
abcde fghij 81828384850707078687888991 0
abcdefg hij 81828384858687070707888991 0
******** End of data ********

I'm pretty sure this worked back on 7.1 but I'm on 7.3.

with junk as (
select concat(concat('abc', x'070707'), 'defghij') data from
sysibm.sysdummy1
union
select concat(concat('abcde', x'070707'), 'fghij') data from
sysibm.sysdummy1
union
select concat(concat('abcdefg', x'070707'), 'hij') data from
sysibm.sysdummy1
)
select data, position(x'070707', data) found_at from junk;

Mine looks like this:

abcdefg hij 8
abc defghij 4
abcde fghij 6

That's an EBCDIC DEL character not ASCII where it's a BEL, I was
misremembering which was which. We had problems with 07 bell and 08
backspace. They didn't convert correctly to EBCDIC, I don't remember
what we had doing the conversion but it ignored control characters and
left them as is, so we had RPG III code that removed both of those
characters.
They were warranty registration cards from a service bureau that did
the data entry so I never knew why those would be embedded. Now that I
think about it, I think those came on 8" floppies too <shiver>.

I don't know about finding foreign charactes, but you can look for hex
strings using position:

select *
from file
where position(x'070707', field) != 0

It might also be interesting to note that x07 is the delete character
and way back in the day (late '80s) I remember seeing lots of those
being stored in text strings especially when we were getting ASCII
date from some service bureau.

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?
