Determining How the External Code Page File Is Specified

Determining How the External Code Page File Is Specified

You can determine how the external code page file is specified.
To determine how the external code page file is specified:
  1. Select a character in your local character set.
  2. For the selected character, locate the equivalent character in the code page ISO-8859 and note the corresponding hexadecimal value.
  3. Use this hexadecimal value to calculate the correct offset into the code page file that you are building.
  4. At this offset, store the hexadecimal representation of your character.
For example:
  1. Select 1 in your local z/OS character set. The character 1 is x'F1 in hexadecimal format.
  2. Locate 1 in the code page ISO-8859 and find its corresponding hexadecimal value. This value is 31.
  3. Locate offset x'31' in the code page file that is being defined. This offset location is at line 4, character 2, where the offset is relative to 1.
  4. At that location, enter F1.
Because no mapping to Unicode exists, you cannot use any static code pages that you defined to perform the following tasks:
  • View data by performing a row test in the PowerExchange Navigator.
  • Convert characters to a target ICU code page.
