EBCDIC code change

EBCDIC code change

EBCDIC code change

Would like to change a EBCDIC code (A0 to E0) in two alpha fields stored in DMS. Check have to be done for each character of both fields (40 character long each). Some suggestions on LINC code for a report will be really appreciated. Thanks!

RE: EBCDIC code change

Found a way to do it just matching the value with a variable defined as SD; HEXVALUE ED;A LE; 1 (@EO@). The @'s before and after the hexadecimal EBCDIC value tells to look for that precise letter or character (note that only a 1 space character is checked but on it's EBCDIC value). Just compare each character with the incorrect value to identify the wrong ones and then FLAG it with the correct value (defined in the same way).

Correct Value in this case: SD; HEXVALUEI ED;A LE; 1 (@EO@)
Incorrect Value: SD; HEXVALUEC ED;A LE; 1 (@AO@).  

BTW, the character checked here is an exclusive spanish letter; Ñ.
