Product Feature: Work Center
There are a number of options for Non Human Readable Data that Designer supports.
- EBCDIC Data
- Packed Decimal Data
More information are available by reading the supported formats in the DOC1 Users Guide.
You can set the encoding to the data and use it in Designer/Production. As always, the encoding specified on Data Import must match the actual Data file encoding.
The various system encoding available are listed in the Sample Data File Properties, in the System Default Encoding Scheme drop down list.
So we would expect the customer to put it into something that makes sense for them / for what they want to use and then select the relevant encoding at Data Import time. As state above, EBCDIC is one possible method and "Packed" is another method.
