View Full Version : CCSID 65535

Does anyone know of a utillity procedure or piece of code that will convert CCSID 65535. We have JD Edwards on our AS/400 and CCSID has been set at the field level on all of the character fields to 65535. Using client access file transfer at least you have the option in the properties tab on the transfer to select 'Convert CCSID 65535'. Visual Age has no option like that, at least none that I am aware of. If there is such an option, or a utility that I could use as mentioned above, I would greatly appreciate hearing about it. You can email me at email@example.com if you know of a solution to this problem.

Tom We had the same problem at our company, with both VRPG and QMF. We use MAPICS by the way. The only soloution we came up with was to do a CHGPF FILE(MYLIB/MYFILE) CCSID(37). We did some testing with this and didn't have any ill results with our MAPICS programs so we went with it. I'll be intrested to see if anyone else has a different soloution. Good Luck, Bruce Shultz

Tom, When we first started running into the 65535 problem, we first set the systems chrid to 37 ChgSysVal QChrId Value(37). Then, I went into every data file library and changed every file's langid. The easiest way to change every file in a library is to set up a PDM option: SBMJOB CMD(CHGPF FILE(&L/&N) LANGID(37)) JOB(&N) You can easily subset your WrkObjPDM display to only physical files by doing an F17 and specifying *File as the object type and PF as the attribute. Then put the PDM option on the first entry and then doing an F13 to repeat it to the end of the list. Bill
