We are facing a problem in data view. In on-shore when in fastload script we check the delimiter sign is '^' but same fast load script when my team opens in off shore they can see delimiter as '[' .
We tried checking data in file, here also appearance of delimiter(in onshore) is '^' and off shore is '['. Then we checked the HEXA value for both special character it appears to be same as B1. It is because of PCOMM connection and VMWARE these special character is getting replaced. Here in onsite we use direct PCOMM to connect but in off shore team first connects to remote desktop via VMWARE and then connect to PCOMM causing this appearance difference. Could you please let me know how this can rectify? below is eg of records appearance:
abcd^2233^fgghh^uu (on shore)
abcd[2233[fgghh[uu (off shore)

1. There is no replacement being done -- the same hex value appears in both places.
2. EBCDIC supports multiple code pages (such as 37 and 1047 and ...) and if the two sites do not use the same code page to view the data -- even if it did not change as you show -- the actual characters seen will be different.
3. You need to find out which code page is used where and determine which code page to use. You can change the emulator code page setting to what the VMWARE system shows, or change the VMWARE code page to see what the emulator shows. Your choice. The computer won't care.
