We have a Japan file with DBCS chars that needs to converted to Single Byte file (SBCS).
Our aim is to convert DBCS characters to SBCS and keep the japanese charcters as is.
Input file format : .18.104.22.168.5.-7.8.9.|.J.A.P.N...F.M.T.|
in the first field, dot(.) refers to X'00' in hexadecimal format. where as in JAPN FMT field, we should not remove the dot(.) as it is part of japanese characters.
We tried with DISPLAY-OF and NATIONAL-OF functions with japan katakana CCSIDs. But it did not work.
MOVE FUNCTION DISPLAY-OF (FUNCTION NATIONAL-OF (INPUT-JPN-TXT, 300), 290) TO OUTPUT-FMT
300 refers to DBCS CCSID for Japan katakana
290 refers to SBCS CCSID for Japan katakana
