Hi all,

I have a problem to convert an extern file (from UNIX) to UTF-8 for deref and loading, because we have in Germany 'Umlauts'.

The environment: Win R12 R2, SQL, CA ServiceManager R14.1, all in german

I tryed a lot of types in pdm_uconv for encoding but I got an Error in pdm_load:

     dbload    6704 FATAL    tokfile.c    537  Invalid    character encountered in input

or in pdm_uconv:

     Conversion to Unicode from codepage failed at input byte position 280. Bytes: f6 Error: Illegal character found

My question is:

How can I determine the correct codepage ?


I use (for examle)  pdm_uconv:  pdm_uconv -f ibm-850_P100-1995 -t UTF-8 -o __load_cnt_5.txt.test.txt  __load_cnt_5.txt



Does anyone have a correct sample???


Thank you  for your help
