Thank you for the help, we are getting a variety of invalid characters from
various sources, as you know, we can store in a field just fine but
displaying it through normal screen DSPF is limited to a valid set of
characters. I am assuming these characters can cause the printer to hang
from time to time also, but I don't really know of a case. I am
definitely going to need to review the reference, it would be nice to have
an automatic filter for bad data.

Trying to avoid "Invalid Data" on the 5250 display
Rob brings up a valid point. My previous answer assumed you are *not*
attempting to build a 5250 data stream "from scratch," but are instead
letting the operating system build it for you, e.g., using a display file.

How low-level do you need to go? A 5250 is not a Lear ADM-3, or even a
DEC VT-100. Building a 5250 data stream from scratch ("User-Defined") is
*not* for the faint of heart.
