Same error. This is on 7.3, PTF's current as-of 10/1.

I guess it's possible there's something else going on. My source is CCSID(37). Yours isn't 1208, is it?

Dcl-s variable char(255) ccsid(1208) ;
Dcl-c constant ';' ;

If %scan(constant :variable) > 0;

You issue may be the field length : varchar(255)...

Use a fixed length instead..

According to a paper from scott clement : dcl-s var2 char(100) ccsid(*utf8); works from Release 7.2

I am only guessing but the example I sent works because I have it in numerous programs.
