Brad,

All of my incoming parms do run through QtmhCvtDB but that doesn't do
anything, it just leaves the '%xx' codes as part of the text string.  If I
don't address the problem via my #escape routine, then the database gets
updated with 'invalid' data.  A while back I tried adding the %%EBCDIC%%
extension in my HTTP configuration but that didn't solve the problem either.

I haven't messed with QzhbCGIParse yet, so I don't know if that would
operate any differently but I was under the impression that this was just a
different way to do the same things...

Any insight would be great!

Thanks,

Joel

Is there a a reason you're not letting QtmhCvtDB or
QzhbCGIParse do this for you?
