Hello

I am developing an ASP application that gets data from a DB2 database on an AS/400. For speed reasons I want to use Sockets to communicate, but this means converting between ASCII and EBCDIC (including packed decimal fields).

Can anyone help with that?

Thanks
James

James,

Here is an article with some sample code from MS on converting from ASCI to EBCDIC. The code sample is for VBA, so it will need to be modified, but only slightly, for use in ASP.
