I have Packed decimal value in input . it seems file manger is doing character set conversion , and having different value in output.

INPUT:
Code:

a,,cæ
81189
1003C   


OUTPUT
Code:

 a  c
484484
010030   


it is changing X'811010839C' To X'408140408340'.

how can I stop this conversion , and having the same string in output.

ALL AVAILABLE INFORMATION AND ALL USED CODE IS REQUIRED to provide any meaningful advice.

One thing is obvious: all "unacceptable" characters are replaced with blanks.
The first inserted blank is a Carriage Control character.

Some sort of "report formatting" has occurred, for the reason you decline to demonstrate to public.

Hi
I just wanted to let you know that I used $FILEM SET PRTTRANS=Off , and it resolved the issue.
I have one more question:
I need only output records in the output file ,no more detail information about file manager,How can I do that?
Thanks for your help
Regards
Leila
