The idea of the interview questions forum is that you supply us with your suggestions and we will correct you if wrong.

Hi,

The easiest way is to use HEX values of any char which is difficult to write using your keyboard. icon_smile.gif

LOW VALUE - X'00'
HIGH VALUE - X'FF'

Edit your PS and do HEX ON. Then edit the hex fields accordingly to get LOW or HIGH. This method can also be used to insert special characters.

Note: The above HEX values are for EBCDIC collating sequence, which is mostly the case.

Thanks,
-Kapil.
