I know about the ALTSEQ-function and I used it already in one application.
But now we have the problem to define some alternate sequence and any other characters should be interpreted as one.
i.e.:
Code:

ALTSEQ CODE=(E301,A301,      /* T, t = x01
             E602,A602,      /* W, w = x02
             C103,8103,      /* A, a = x03
             C804,8804,      /* H, h = x04
             C305,8305,      /* C, c = x05
             ??FF     )      /* any others = xFF


Has anybody an idea to realize this without coding any combination?
Thank you

You can't initialize the ALTSEQ table to X'FF's and then change other characters to other values. You would have to specify every pair to be changed from the normal EBCDIC sequence.

But if you tell us what exactly you're trying to do, we may be able to tell you how to do it in a different way. Please show an example of your input records and what you want for output, and explain what you're trying to do.
