Ascii vs. Ebcdic

When you view  your data does it have different charaters inbetween that do not look ASCII?  If so, then in your record format type the following:

ebcdic record

record details add them


view your data again. Be sure to check for '/A0'  this is an ebcidc character which means endline.
