Make an OLE DB connection

How can I make an OLE DB connection to the iSeries? I want to force the translation of "CCSID 65535" to text. I tried to put the parameter "ForceTranslation=1" in the connection string, but it didn't work.

It is not possible to force 65535 translation in OLE DB prior to V5R1 (unless of course you use provider msdasql and actually use ODBC that support 65535 force translation).

However, you can use the converter object for these files as described here.
