Hi, When there are Japanese Kanji - double byte Japanese Characters(actually Chinese characters) in physical file, the PC txt file records become incorrect by using iSeries Access for Windows Data Transfer. All fields after the double byte Japanese characters shift two bytes to the left. Please find attached for reference.
Is there anyway to solve this problem ?

Re: iSeries Access for Windows Data Transfer problem2012-11-06T21:23:03ZThis is the accepted answer. This is the accepted answer.I think this is due to the difference in representation of DBCS in a mixed SBCS DBCS sequence of characters. EBCDIC requires a shift out character preceding a sequence of DBCS characters and a shift in character succeeding a sequence of DBCS characters, while ASCII does not.
What this means is that a mixed SBCS DBCS sequence of character may look like this:
CCCODDDDDDICCC - EBCDIC
CCCDDDDDDCCC - ASCII
C represents a single byte character
O represents the shift out character
DD represents a double byte character
I represents the shift in character.
It can be seen that the 1st single byte character following DBCS is displaced 2 characters to the left in the ASCII representation.

Is there any option in Client Access to fix it during data transfer?
