Open dataset prob


Hello All,

We have upgraded our system from 4.6 to ERP 6.0 . In few cases data is coming from other systems in as files. The file when checked is neither in UTF-8 or UTF-16 format.

But when I'm trying to open the file using open dataset dsn for input text mode encoding default ( utf-8 default) its not identifying or converting german characters. And as a result the program is dumping since it cannot be converted.

Could anyone please let me know how should I read my file when its in neither in UTF-8/16 format.This is an urgent issue which needs to be addressed asap. Any pointers or answers will be highly appreciated.
