Hey,
That's a similar problem to systems supporting hebrew, and that's a language I'm familiar with.
What is the system CCSID?
What is the user's CCSID?
What is the database file's CCSID?

Thanks Shalomc for your reply

The CCSID for the system is 65535
In QCHRID the code page is 420 which is arabic
The CCSID for user is 420(arabic)
Database file CCSID is default .

Hi Mohd.

Before using ODBC with any other external Developing tool like VB specially with Arabic you have to verify that ODBC do not Translate the data...

1- Open the ODBC drive you have created
2- Select "Translate" Tab
3- Check "Do not translate CCSID 65535" radio box

Ok Mohd.

- Old version of CA400 requires a fix of two files called BIDION.ini and BIDIOFF.ini to enable BI Directional retreival of data ... anyway if you can transfer correct data from AS400 using ordinary CA transfer you should not care about this anymore

- All projects that I have implemented with ISeries and VB were more easy than you described so let me check about our settings on the ISeries (cause we use Arabic also) and I will get back to you shortly.

- At the mean time have a look at

  It's a usefull tool but only trial

Hi Mohd.

- QCCSID     = 65535
- QCHRID     = 337 & Code Page = 37
- QCCSID for user = 65535
- QCCSID for file   = 65535

Try this (if Possible)

Fouad,
When we couldn't get hebrew via ODBC, it turned out that the file code page was 65535.
When the file code page was changed to 424, the conversion took place.

I suggest that you change the file CCSID to 420 and retry the operation.
Then, there is the matter of right-to-left text direction....
With JDBC there should be no problem, with ODBC we have to see what happens.
