Technote (FAQ)


Data is put on the IFS using GIFSGATE and it is in garbled format.


A new parameter was added to the GIFSGATE command called OUTCCSID that defaults to *STMF, however the default should be *STDA because it is writing to the IFS which is an ASCII format


Change the default on the GIFSGATE command using CHGCMD for the OUTCCSID parameter to be *STDA rather than *STMF or in your CL, add the parameter OUTCCSID(*STDA).
