My colleagues who were using a system i (Sorry don't know what model) at V5R4M0, recently upgraded to a Power 740 (4-core) at V6R1M0, and are now experiencing issues with the target files after executing CPYTOIMPF to populate them.
Example: CPYTOIMPF FROMFILE(QTEMP/EISITEM) TOSTMF('eis/Latest71/Item.fil') MBROPT(*REPLACE)
FROMCCSID(37) STMFCODPAG(*PCASCII) RCDDLM(*CRLF) DTAFMT(*FIXED)
Specifically the target files have "spaces" appended to the records after the end of the database field values.
And not just one space or a few spaces, but an indescriminate number of spaces (like 188 spaces) or some other large number of spaces that cannot be explained.
Since I am retired from doing system i work, and don't have access to one...I am posting on their behalf, and was wondering if you all have encountered anything similar? I suspect that something has changed through the conversion to V6R1 that was not an issue at V5R4, or perhaps the CCSID's being used, etc. Any help is much appreciated.
