I don't think this is a System 21 issue, sounds more like an iSeries issue.
You will have to load a language feature or change the character set on the
database file, I think.

Subject: [SYSTEM21] Character conversions

Has anyone ever had to upload foreign characters to the system? I have
Russian data in a spreadsheet with some Russian characters, when this is
uploaded to the system each Russian character is replaced by a '?'. It's not
just a display issue because the hex view is the same.

If anyone has done anything similar with any foreign character sets I'd be
glad to hear about it.

Thanks and regards
