Before going to IBM support, thought I'd see if anyone has seen this.
We are in the process of moving from TTO/DTF data transfers to ACS DTFX. When we run one from a Windows BAT file, we see warning messages - CWBTF0105, I think it is. Here is an example -
An error was detected in Row 3870, Column 5 while performing data conversion.
Using the DTF version 1.2, it did not seem to have a problem. There is a byte in the 5th column (field), value x'1A', and the transfer converted that to the "Right single quotation mark" - the DTF has the "Translate system data to" set to ANSI.
The DTFX was migrated from the DTF, and this results in that message - and in the CSV it has a question mark. The "Translate system data to" is set to windows-1252. That works for most things, but for this character, not good - it displays a question mark in that position.
On a display file it shows a blank - nondisplayable set to x'40'.
DTFX does not have ANSI as an obvious option - it does have various ISO-8859s, and I thought I'd heard that those are connected somewhat - so I tried ISO-8859-1 - voila! It worked.
I really don't want to have users go through all these and change to this ISO value. And I really don't want to suppress the warning messages - that's a setting in the DTFX.
So what's with the migration "translate to" settings - and why in the world does x'1A' end up that right single quote, since x'1A' is a control character in everything.
Help is appreciated! Hope I explained enough - and not too much! And this is where I miss Bruce V so much!
