These two formats use different bit combinations for the same character. EBCDIC is used in IBM mainframes. Most other platforms use ASCII. In ASCII format the letters A through Z are represented by hex 41 through hex 5A. I EBCDIC thse characters are represented by C1 through C9, D1 through D9 and E2 through E9. Numbers in ASCII are represented by 30 through 39. In EBCDIC these same characters are represented by F0 through F9.
