Posted: Fri Jul 08, 2016 12:24 pm Post subject: Double Byte Character validation
We use Japanese character - Kanji Character set to load our database. I see we are receiving invalid Double byte character which is causing the DB load process to get failed and leading other downstream issues. So I'm looking for any logic in COBOL we can do validation on the data which is received and either skip those or make it to Spaces so that this will avoid batch failure.
The Double Byte Kanji character can be in Name., Address, etc...
For Example :
X'0E438E0F' is Valid Double Byte character.
X'0E430F' is Invalid Double Character.
Any help in identifying these double byte as invalid would be of great help.
