From Windows 2000, I'm using the Client Access ODBC Driver (32-bit), Version 7.0 to fetch the data from DB2/400. The data is encoded with EBCDIC scheme, but the driver converts the data into ASCII format. I'm getting corrupted data. What can I do to solve this problem?
You'll want to look at the CCSID value for your character columns. In general, character columns should not be set to 65535. The CCSID system value should also not be 65535, it should be set to value corresponding to your language idd.
