Hi,

Does DFSORT support UNICODE data (UTF 16 , UTF 8 ETC.)? Could you suggest what changes we have to make to implement it?
Awaiting response. Thanks.

There's a link to the manuals in this forum, and at the top of each page.

Hi Bill,

Thanks for the reply. I did check the manuals for DFSORT but found no reference for Unicode support. Can anybody please confirm.

AFAIK, DFSORT does not have any built-in functions for supporting unicode data.

In case LOCALE is of your interest - see: http://publibz.boulder.ibm.com/cgi-bin/bookmgr_OS390/BOOKS/ICE1CA20/1.5.3?DT=20060615185603

DFSORT does not have any built-in functions for supporting unicode data. As Anuj pointed out, can you use LOCALE? What kind of operations are you planning to do with unicode?

Hi Skolusu,

Thanks for the reply. I couldn;t understand how to use Locale. I have a file o/p from a cobol program which consists of UTF-8 data.
The file needs to be sorted on a field which is in UTF-8 format so how can I achieve this for example will CH work for unicode data existing in russian and chinese languages.
