CCSID
hi all, i am working on an AS/400 on a multi-company & devise application, US based in term of CCSID and character set now, i have to print a turkish invoice on a network printer and I don't know how to print these special turkish characters ? data I would like to print are keyed in thru a well configured client-access session (using 1026 turkey host code page), so all special characters in my spool are well displayed & stored when using this turkish session but when i send my spool to my printer, characters are changed - should I change something on my PRTF ? - should I translate all alpha fields thru a *TBL translation table ? if you have any idea, fell free... thanks a lot

    What printer are you printing to? If it's a HP LJ2015P then I don't think you'll have much luck whatever you do. They have very limited PCL5e font support so can't print a very wide range of accented and special characters.

    hi all FYI, i've solved my problem it was just a missing setup in the printer, which had to be changed to turkish code page so, the way to print turkish is simple : - have turkish text in data base (must be keyed in thru a turkish client-access session, code page 1026) - set the turkish CCSID EBCDIC 1026 on the PRTF then create your spool - send your spool to a well setuped turkish printer (code page ASCII 857) I thought that the printer was able to analize the data it received and automatically set the appropriate code page, but in my case, a simple *SCS spool, the original code page information is not transmitted Rod

    it was just a missing setup in the printer, which had to be changed to turkish code page That is troublesome, but maybe it just isn't clear. Did you have to "install" the Turkish code page or did you merely change the printer configuration to print Turkish as the default or something similar? If you simply changed the default, then that might have been unnecessary. It's probably an excellent idea -- just maybe not needed. What would concern me is this:
    • - as/400 QCCSID 65535
    That setting tells the system not to convert characters, handle data as binary. In a multi-language environment, that's troublesome to put it mildly. In 21 years working with AS/400s at many sites, I've yet to find one that should be set with QCCSID 65535. (Except for systems explicitly intended to test CCSID issues.) Worse, it's unusual to find systems that aren't set at 65535. Even simple transfers to ANSI/ASCII systems (e.g., PCs) bring grief. Tom
