Question:
How can we enter/register external characters from modules developed by Plex to DB of IBM i?
Answer:
In Plex's EBCDIC translation table (.GXT), each external character area of IBM i and Windows is mapped as follows. 
For example, it is possible to operate mutually by registering a certain external character in the 0xF040 address on the PC (Windows) side and registering the same character in the first IBM i side external character code 0x6941.
