Description:

The CA Easytreive product does not support UNICODE data type at present.

Solution:

Please see:
http://publib.boulder.ibm.com/infocenter/dzichelp/v2r2/index.jsp?topic=/com.ibm.db2.doc.apsg/qchp9.htm.

The DB2 NEWFUN(YES) means that the SQL statements in the DBRM use Unicode UTF-8.

CCSID conversion of source programs: If the SQL statements of your source program are not in Unicode UTF-8, the DB2 Version 8 precompiler converts then to UTF-8 for parsing. The precompiler uses the source CCSID value to convert from that CCSID to CCSID 1208 (UTF-8). If you want to prepare a source program that is written in a CCSID that cannot be directly converted to or from CCSID 1208, you must create an indirected conversion. (For information about indirect conversions, see z/OS Support for Unicode).

Since CA Easytrieve does not support Unicode, CA Easytrieve cannot handle the data.
