I made this change several years ago (changing the system value to 37). I was concerned also... But I didn't experience any ill effects.

I think changing the JOB CCSID would be enough.
If you are on Release 7.2 or higher you may also add the CCSID to the CLOB
variable:

DCL-S YourClobVar SQLTYPE(CLOB: 1000000) CCSID(1208);

You need to change your system to use the correct CCSID. That should be 37 for you. Using 65535 is a really bad idea.

YAJL does indeed work with 1208 but when data needs to be copied from/to a regular variable it will attempt to use the system value for the conversion.
But 65535 is a "no conversion" code so the error is issued.

As someone else said - fix your system or (at the very least) fix the CCSID for the job - that _should_ make it work.

That makes sense. That doesn't mean I understand the solution.

I have an RPG program using Scott's YAJL to create the StOut for web
service. Based on what I learned a week or so ago, Scott's YAJL produces CCSID 1208?

I want to consume that web service with an RPG program residing in the
same library and am using the SQL that Birgitta offered:

SysTools.httpGetClob()

I see nothing in Birgitta's example that says CCSID.

I figure I am at the right place but have no idea which way to go.

is your system CCSID 65535? Or are you working with a old table
created when the system CCSID was 65535?

Fix that...
