Hi Masters,

As part of a requirement we need to parse the Message with special characters of Afrikaans language. I am trying to get the corresponding CCSID of the Afrikaans to parse the message ,but could not get any.

I tried searching on this forum and below URL, but did not help.

https://www-01.ibm.com/software/globalization/ccsid/ccsid_registered.html

Need help on this regarding the CCSID of Afrikaans language to parse the message.

Hi...below links suggests that 037 is the CCSID for Afrikaans, not sure whether all chars are supported though...

I thought that CCSID 037 was US EBCDIC?

Just be aware that 037 is EBCDIC. If in doubt go for a mutibyte CCSID like UTF-8 and verify whether or not your parser supports it.

If you're looking for Afrikaans and can't find it, the closest would probably be Netherland...

"Parse" is not quite the right word to describe writing or reading a message.

There is no specific ccsid that is unique to Afrikaans. Aside from Unicode, there are dozens of ASCII-based ccsids that can fully support it, including 819 (ISO 8859-1), or 923 (ISO 8859-15).

That link is specific to IBM i Series, so it may not be relevant elsewhere. But there are also dozens of EBCDIC-based ccsids, including 037, that can fully support Afrikaans.

It is up to the sending application to decide which ccsid to use when writing a message, and to pass that information along to the receiving application(s) in the associated MQ headers, so that the receiving applications can read the message correctly.
