Style error while opening

XML error
I have a program (RPGLE, iSeries) which creates XML Excel. This program is running fine on almost 20 LPARS but on one LPAR, we are getting style error while opening Excel. When saw the XML code in notepad generated by program in color(XML code), # is replace by Ä.  

It should be (ss:Color="#0000FF") but getting changed to (ss:Color="Ä0000FF")  

Any idea why this is happening on this particular LPAR?

    The "#" symbol is a variant character in EBCDIC encoding. If it is required in text, CCSID handling needs to be correct.

    Make sure the CCSID is set correctly when the file is created in its directory, and make sure the programming is putting the correctly encoded data into the file.

    What is the QCCSID system value? What CCSID does the job run under when the file is created?

    To follow up on Tom's quite excellent answer, would the LPAR that's failing happen to be configured as Finish or Swedish? In a CCSID such as 37 or 500 the # is x'7B'; in CCSID 1143 x'7B' is the Ä.
