I have been using Python and ibm_db_dbi for automating some tasks. The problem I have is our CMS system stores its data in 65535 CCSID fields. Is there an easier way to translate that than to cast them to 37 on each field?

Dealing with encoding issues is one thing which I think is
significantly easier in Python than in SQL.

Which Python are you using, and on which platform?

If you just query the data normally, without explicitly handling
CCSID, what do you get?
