SBCS and DBCS are not terms specific to DB2 -- they are used across the mainframe. And Google is your friend -- Googling sbcs dbcs returned about 45,800 hits and the first three returned hits all explain the terms and their use quite well.

Hi Robert,

Thanks indeed.

What i bothered here is,

For a Unicode tablespace , The SYSIBM.SYSTABLESPACE catalog table's column values are ,

ENCODING_SCHEME . . . . . . . U
SBCS_CCSID . . . . . . . . . . 367
DBCS_CCSID . . . . . . . . . . 1200
MIXED_CCSID . . . . . . . . . 1208

For an ASCII Tablespace ,

ENCODING_SCHEME . . . . . . . A
SBCS_CCSID . . . . . . . . . . 858
DBCS_CCSID . . . . . . . . . . 0
MIXED_CCSID . . . . . . . . . 0

if i want unicode data from an ASCII table or ASCII data from EBCDIC table, then how do i play with these data conversion for the above numbers mentioned. ?

Note : Mostly with BMC tool
