hi all .
are there anyone have the experience using the east letters on ibm mainframe /cobol ?
i know the east letters such as chinese or japanese is cost two bytes in storage , but i have no idea how it exactly stored in memory or vsam file or db , i know there is a datatype named 'N' in cobol 85 can deal with this type of date , but in the older version ,how should i do ?how to store a east letter in to storage or display them from db or vsam?

any suggestion will do , if someone will offer a detail information or basic theory about storing east letters on mainframe , it will very helpful. icon_smile.gif
