Binary Packed Numbers

We are taking records off of a MQseries. I am using the JMS adapter to take messages off the series. The problem I am having is that in these messages there are Binary Packed Numbers, I believe these numbers are in the format that IBM uses to store number more efficiently. I was wondering if anyone else has had this situation, and what they did to fix it.

I am getting the same parse error as that guy in your second link, which means this probably isn't solvable using the basic XI tools...

Hi Paul !!

Have you tried with different text encodings in the file adapter ??

Hi Paul !!

Just an idea.. in SAP documentation about text encoding, says:

"Check which other character sets are supported in the documentation for your Java runtime implementation"

I've this data:

CP 037 8-bit EBCDIC encoding form

CP 500 8-bit EBCDIC encoding form

UCS-2??

useful link: http://www.hwacha.net/charsets

Maybe there is another charset that works ok with BCD.

Matias.
