  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • For z/OS source with codepage 420 going to Windows target with
    codepage 864, the converted data applied at target does not
    match the conversion from DB2 load.  The reason is that QAPPLY
    used ICU to convert data from 420 > Unicode > 864.  ICU does
    not use same conversion tables as DB2.  Customers expect the
    same result of converted data as obtained by DB2 load.  Hence,
    custom 864 convertor has been provided by ICU.  QAPPLY code will
    use this custom convertor if it is installed, to use for
    conversion from codepage 420 > 864.
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  •  QAPPLY uses ICU to convert from
    source codepage > Unicode > 864; ICU has a custom convertor for
    864 such that codepage conversion results will be consistent
    with DB2 conversion tables.
    

Problem conclusion

  •  For QAPPLY codepage conversion (via ICU)
    results to be consistent with DB2, customers can use custom
    convertor named "ibm-864_X120-2012"
    

Temporary fix
