Error description

  • An application attempted to get a message encoded in CCSID 1208
    using MQGMO_CONVERT to convert the message data to CCSID 1200.
    
    When the message body contained a character in the Supplementary
    Multilingual Plane (SMP) then the conversion should have been
    successful but instead the convert failed and the MQGET
    operation incorrectly returned MQRC_DBCS_ERROR  (2150).
