Hi,

My requirement is to send one file into chinese description. How this will be handled in COBOL. As per my knowledge it is done thru DBCS data type. Can you please explain about what is the DBCS and how it is stored.

Thanks
Pradeep

Hi Pradeep,

You need to tell us where is the data coming from and where is it going to ?

The subject line says "How The chinese and Japanese is stored"
Where do you want to store the data ? In datasets or database

As chinese and Japanese characters are carrying double bytes so we use DBCS for that, which means at both the end we use control cards known as shift in(HEX '0E') at starting point and shift out(HEX '0F') at ending point,which makes the string understandable by IBM environment.
Anyone please correct me if i am wrong...
