I pretty sure that named constants are stored in the source CCSID (37 in
your case) but that's just my impression. Barbara Morris would be the final
authority on this.

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.
