Not able to display Japanese characters in AL11

Hi,

I have written a program to generate a file using code page "8000". The statement is as follows:

OPEN DATASET FILE1 FOR OUTPUT IN LEGACY TEXT MODE CODE PAGE '8000'.

However when I display the file in transaction code AL11, all japanese characters are displayed in ######.

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks,

Ken.

    Hi,

    Check the code page for other langugaes and try to pass that value in the coda page.

    Also check in different clients. In most of the cases it should be either 1100 or 1160.

    Hello Ken,

    Any specifics why you're LEGACY TEXT MODE? You can try this:

    OPEN DATASET FILE1 FOR OUTPUT IN TEXT MODE ENCODING UTF-8.

      Hi Suhas,

      Thanks for the reply.

      I used LEGACY TEXT MODE because I wanted to cater for Non-Unicode and I cannot use encoding UTF8 for Japanese Shift JIS charaters.

      Actually the file was generated correctly because I can display the japanese characters in Internet Explorer (with japanese encoding), but I can't see them when I open the file in AL11.

      Any idea?

      Thanks,

      Ken.

    Hi,

    I have faced similar issue while i tried to display a .Csv file in AL11, the coding which was written by some one previously used CODE PAGE 8000. i have used ENCODING DEFAULT and it worked fine for me.

    hope if this helps.

    Thanks,
