Problem summary

  • In DataStage server jobs, the SOUNDEX and ICONV with S code
    functions in BASIC transformer stages can return unmappable
    strings when the first character in the data is not between A-Z
    or a-z.
    

Problem conclusion

  • Introduced an environment variable DSE_SOUNDEX_BEHAVIOR.  When
    set to 1, an empty string will be returned from soundex if the
    first character is not A-Z or a-z.
