  • CCSID issue

    I need to execute SQL statement on file whose CCSID is 13488. I have tried changing the user profile CCSID to 13488 but giving error for the invalid value.
    Can someone suggest if there is any other alternative. I need to update particular field value from say A to B for certain set of records.

    Also this is to be done in the CL program using RUNSQLSTM.

    BTW I just figured out that AS400 file is SQL Table

    Have you tried to cast the replacement value into UNICODE?

    Update ....
         set YourValue = Cast('NewValue' as VarGraphic(256) CCSID 13488)
    BTW if you are already on Release 6.1 or higher a RUNSQL CL command was introduced via PTF (SF99701 Level 14 SF99601 Level 25 ), that allows you to directly execute almost all (Except SELECT) SQL commands from within CL.

      Thanks Birgitta.... Let me try using RUNSQL CL command. Current version is v5r3 bt the one for upgrade is on 6.1 so I can use it there.
      Also I have not used UNICODE so far, will try that too.

      I will post the result soon.
