Hi Our iSeries is on V5R4 and hosts a few Lotus Domino Servers... The Domino servers runs scheduled agents which create CSV File stored on the IFS. I can access and open these CSV files under Windows (with this syntax \SERVERSHAREDFOLDER)but the content is like this : "ÔõððÆðøóù÷@@@@òðòðð" Do you think it's a CCSID issue ? File information said "37".... Any clue ? TIA

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Hi,

I suspect you’re right in saying it’s a CCSID issue. Try viewing the files from the iSeries using WRKLNK or EDTF.

You should be able to change the CCSID on an IFS file using CHGATR.

Regards,

Martin Gilbert.

    Thank's Martin Yes I can read the file with WrkLnk... It is correct. But do not forget it is a Domino server program wich create the file in the IFS so I have no access (or i don't know how ?) to iSeries command ! Maybe something to tune the CCSID used by default (so i will change it) ? But where and how ? Someone knows ?

    Hi, You can also change the attributes from the WRKLNK command. Type option 13 next to the file and then *CCSID for attribute and your new CCSID number in new value. Regards, Martin Gilbert.

    CCSID 37 is the European EBCDIC character set. If you open the file in Windows, it will be treated as if it was ASCII, and therefore will look just as you describe. Changing the CCSID of the file will not make it readable. You'll need to convert the data from the EBCDIC coding scheme to ASCII. Alternatively, if these files are being created by Domino just so that they can be opened and read in Windows, configure Domino to create the data in ASCII format. I'm afraid I can't help you with that, but I'm sure it must be possible. Sloopy

    Not to make be picky, but..... CCSID 37 is one CCSID that is often associated with North American EBCDIC encoding of the Latin-1 character set. The Latin-1 character set is 697 and is representative of the languages found in Western Europe. The code page of CCSID 37 is code page 37. CCSID 819 is the ISO 8859-1 ASCII equivalent of CCSID 37. CCSID 819 also uses the 697 character set. The code page of CCSID 819 is code page 819. CCSID 37 is NOT the European EBCDIC character set.

    When you want to read this ebcdic coded file in windows, ftp automatically translates ebcdic to ascii. so to say link network drive using ftp://yourserver/your_shared_path way... should work.
