Issue with Read dataset - Character set conversion is not possible


Hi Gurus,

We are converting our system from 4.7C to ECC 6.0.

I am facing issue with one of the interface file read where in one of the record contains '£' symbol.

The file is present on either presentation / application server

This is the ST22 dump message

'''''At the conversion of a text from codepage '4110' to codepage '4103''''''

However I tried rectify this by using either

1> Opening dataset in legacy text mode


2> Using encoding non-unicode

We have around 600 interfaces and multitude of open dataset statement. Is it wise to update all the open dataset stmt using in legacy mode?

I am a bit sceptical to use encoding default option.

Can anyone give me the pros and cons of using encoding default Vs using in legacy text mode with examples?

Thanks in advance.
