You are using QMF which uses the Graphical Data Display Manager (GDDM) and you need to change the application codepage (APPCPG) to 037 for the DB/2 database. You want to do this for a single instance of GDDM. What is the easiest way to do this?
Do the following to change the application codepage to 037:
- Create a FB 80 sequential file by the name of userid.ADMDEFS where userid is either your TSO userid or a HLQ that every one has access to. The name can be any name but using "ADMDEFS" in the name signifies the usage.
- Edit this file and place the following line starting in column 2 or beyond (starting in column 1 would make it a comment)
- Save the file and add the following DD card to your QMF start up JCL:
//ADMDEFS DD DSN=userid.ADMDEFS,DISP=SHR
Use the following TSO command if you would like to use the Allocate command to create the file:
ALLOC FI(ADMDEFS) DS(userid.ADMDEFS) SHR
For a complete list of APPCPGs supported by GDDM, see Appendix A.2 External defaults: full descriptions in the GDDM System Customization and Administration manual.
