Hi,

I am converting as below.

//ICONV EXEC PGM=EDCICONV,
// PARM=('FROMCODE(IBM1388),TOCODE(IBM1381)')

The output data set supposed to be ASCII. All character seems to be good. The newline is missing. So in ASCII system the file becomes one single large record.

Any idea ?

In z/OS there is no CRLF or LF, hence additional data during conversion is not added.

Hi,

Thanks for your reply. In my shop, we cant use REXX. I managed to achieve this by putting X'15' as the end of line for each record using SORT OVERLAY.

Post that file was passed to EDCICONV for codepage conversion.
Tool converted this X'15' to X'0A' - ASCII LF and works just fine after I downloaded it to PC.

Thank you once again for your reply.

Just cause I'm curious why would Rexx be excluded as a consideration ?

Just because some people think REXX is inefficient and complex.

Using REXX only to append a single constant byte to each record would be the same as using a microscope to hammer nails. icon_biggrin.gif
Of course, using REXX might be very useful to impress the managers who have no idea what’s happening. 36_16_4.gif
