DB2 for z/OS Code Page Parameters

DB2 for z/OS Code Page Parameters

You can use the DB2CODEPAGE statement in the DBMOVER configuration file to specify single-byte, graphic double-byte, and mixed-byte code pages for CHAR and VARCHAR columns in a DB2 for z/OS source or target subsystem.
The DB2CODEPAGE statement applies to bulk data movement operations only. For DB2 CDC, PowerExchange always uses the native code page of the data.
During PowerExchange installation, a bind job binds the DB2 plan for PowerExchange as EBCDIC, without specifying the CCSIDs. As a result, PowerExchange uses the default application programming CCSIDs that were defined for the DB2 subsystem when it was created. PowerExchange retrieves these CCSIDs from the DB2 catalog tables and uses them along with the DB2CODEPAGE parameters to determine the code page to use.
Verify that the CCSIDs specified in the DB2CODEPAGE parameters match the CCSIDs that are specified for the DB2 subsystem on the DSNTIPF panel and in the DB2 installation job for the DSNHDECP load module.


We’d like to hear from you!
