look at the string in HEX,
if the hex value corresponds to the @ char, then check the 3270 emulator character mappings

or simpler...
open a member under ispf and check that all the chars You type are displayed properly !

you should view the db2 column in hex using file-aid or some other db2 tool
or
simply select the column with the hex function

to determine what value is actually stored.

and as was suggested, you need to verify your code page settings.
