Hi!

This is my fisrt post so please bear with me if anything is unclear.
Here is my question:

I am transfering data from an IBM Mainframe to a server via IBM FTP CS V1R8

the file is
Record format . . . : VB
Record length . . . : 32756
Block size . . . . : 32760

the caracter in question is "Ç" X'68'

The FTP translates this into a "Ã" ASCII --> 199

If I use a record format FB it translates ok "Ç" ASCII --> 128

This site is in Portugal.

Thanks for any help.

1. ASCII technically only has x'00' to x'7F' (128) characters, so saying x'C7' (199) is ASCII is incorrect -- there is no x'C7' in ASCII. There are extensions to ASCII, such as the PC 8-bit version, but terminology is extremely important here and if you mean that character set you need to say so.

2. What do you want the character to translate to?

3. My z/Architecture Reference Summary, SA22-7871, lists ISO-B character set x'C7' as being the character "Ç", while the PC-850 character set translated x'C7' to "Ã". Perhaps you need a different PC character set?

One issue he mentions is that the translation is different depending on whether the dataset is FB or VB. I think he wants the translation done to VB dataset to behave like a FB translation.

Have you tried with XLATE translate table for the FTP?

About ASCII

I want to translate X'68' to Ç

Check out

http://slayeroffice.com/tools/ascii/

Ç correspond to 199

there is 255 ascii codes if you consider ascii extended codes

!!
The files are now transferring correctly. We connot understand why.

Perhaps some changes done by the systems department worked but not sure wich one did the job.

Perhaps only that file had some special charcteristics that do not transfer correctly. I still have a copy of the file and it does not transfer correctly. other files produced by the same job now transfer ok with the x'68' converted to 'Ç'.

I will report back if we find what the problem was.

Thank you for you time.
