Hi Mark,

I can't offer too much help - but I did a quick test on my system.

When I added a Message to one of our message files it went in with my Job
CCSID 285 and I was able to edit it using iSphere Message File Editor ok.

I then added a new Message and specifically gave it a CCSID of 65535. I was
also able to successfully edit this using iSphere Message File Editor.

So it does seem to be working for me.

Strangely enough, I am unable to change the CCSID of the messages in my
message file to 37. It starts at *JOB, and if I change it to 37 it remains
at *JOB, and when displayed it is still 65535.

I know. It isn't my decision. I have tried to get that changed, but the
powers that be are a apprehensive about changing it. They think changing
will break something.

IBM i: 7.1
iSphere: 3.3.0.r

I have finally gotten iSphere loaded, and I am liking it. But, I am
having a problem with the Message File Editor. I cannot Preview or
or Change messages. It just does nothing. If I double-click on a
message I
get the following error:

An error has occurred. See error log for more details. Parameter
'ccsid' must not be [null].

Our system has QCCSID set to 65535.

Jobs have:
Coded character set identifier . . . . . . . . . : 65535
Default coded character set identifier . . . . . : 37

Unfortunately messages in the message file also have CCSID 65535.

I am guessing that is the problem. Could we have a preference to state
which CCSID we are using to replace the 65535? Or is there an easy way
change the CCSID of messages?
