Suggest you look at the values in the program in hex before the insert and then look at the inserted values (from the table) in hex.
As DBZ mentioned, this is not random.
You may have a code page inconsistency or you may have a difference in your mainframe and pc/3270-emulator character set. For example, your example includes a cent-sign (¢). That character is not on my keyboard so to include it here, i used copy/paste. If my memory has engaged this morning, the cent-sign was a Shift-6 on other keyboards, but on this one Shift-6 is the ^.
