I agree with this solution.   I don't understand the point of xlating all bad characters to x'39', and then using %scanrpl on x'39'... just use %xlate to translate them all to x'40'.

That way any control codes will be replaced by blanks.

converting all of x'00' - x'39' might be overkill, though... you probably only need to convert those that would be interpreted as 5250 control codes.
