V5R4. We have a client database that, for the first time, has to deal with Latin-2 characters. We have set up some sessions to use Polish configuration (code page 1153) and got around printing problems by having a separately configured printer. Now we have a problem with exporting the data to external systems (to be accessed by SQL server and TSQL (I have no other details)). The SQL server people say that they can't translate. We have tried creating a a new PF with CCSID 1153 (the norm is 285), also CPYTOIMPF with CCSID 1153 but no joy. Also tried Query/400 and VARCHAR but it will not allow CCSID 1153. CCSID 870 does not translate all characters for all Latin-2 so it is not an option. Any suggestions gratefully received. Thanks. Abby.
