Using the RC/Update browse option, to browse a table, special characters such as the Euro sign are not displayed.
How can special characters such as this be displayed?
RC/Edit and RC/Browse utilize the ISPF/PDF translation tables to determine which characters are displayable.
If a particular character is non-displayable, then RC/Edit and RC/Browse will display the character as a blank or period.
Detailed instructions about Customize ISPF/PDF Translation Tables can be found in the "ISPF Planning and Customizing" manual.
As an additional work-around you may wish to try using the EXPLODE line command while in RC/Update display.
This utilizes a native ISPF function to display the data and should provide the display of characters not currently shown.
To explode a character column, type EXPLODE on the command line, move the cursor to the column you want to explode, and press <Enter>.
