Issue/Introduction

Sending a .csv file from XCOM for Window to XCOM for AIX and it keeps changing the characters. Whether the transfer specified Binary or ASCII, it still changes the characters 

Anything with a ' mark is changed it to a #

 

Cause

The file was being viewed with a different code page than the one that created the file and this caused a character to be displayed differently after it was transferred.

Environment

Release : 11.6

Component : CA XCOM Data Transport for Windows

Resolution

Use the same code page on AIX as on Windows.

This was resolved by using UT8 to create the file.
