Hi all,

I request you that I need a Rexx code to convert CHARSET from IBM-500 to IBM-1026 (Iso-turkish).

Actually we run a query through QMF and send the report to users through email. Before send the report, we need to convert them into Turkish code format (IBM-1026,ISO8859-9). This should be done only through REXX code.

Kindly provide me your suggestions.

Only?
Are you rejecting any other method, however simple or already available on your system or in your current process?

Hi CICS Guy,

Please do not take it in wrong way. We need solution only through REXX code as per client request.
We have a solution through JCL with 3 steps, 1. run QMF query, 2. Code conversion thro EDCICONV Jcl, and 3. send converted report to users thro email.

As It will be hard to use Batch for users, we request for a solution only thro REXX code.

Your company before getting into the consulting business should have planned to acquire the proper skills to satisfy the client' s requests!

or better alternative have gained the client' s esteem/trust to have it' s ( Your company )
proposals and solutions accepted by the client as long as they support the requirements

or encore be the driving force in setting the the tools/practices to be used to satisfy the client' s requirements

unless, naturally, Your company is just doing the donkey' s work ( is not a partner in decision making )

many of us replying to question are consultants,
and ethics dictates that we acquire the skills we are selling on our own,
not ask anybody else to provide them at no charge

Hi all,

We already have solution with JCL utility. But users do not have option to use batch / JCL. They will just run query through QMF and sent report to users through QMF.
We have a request to convert the report into iso-turkish code charset before send them to users.
As per client request, we need this code conversion to be done through REXX code. Please provide your suggestions.

Hi,

Thanks for your suggestions.
Before I send my topic, I searched for that and tried in all possibilities. Finally I Posted here to get to know from experts.

Could anyone help me,
1. Is it possible to make Rexx code for code conversion like what EDCICONV Jcl utility does ?
2. If yes, Please provide me Rexx code.

Thanks in advance.

All the three steps you've mentioned (1. run QMF query, 2. Code conversion thro EDCICONV Jcl, and 3. send converted report to users thro email. ) can be accomplished through Rexx. But no one is going to code that for you , free of cost. If you start with some code and you are struggling with an issue we can help. Otherwise it is better you ask help with someone at your organization wh knows Rexx.

1) Yes, learn what the EDCICONV procedure does, then use rexx to allocate the files and run the utility.
2) No, YOU provide the code, then we give more good advices!
