6.7 Translation Tables Used by Host Monitor and Export to PC

If you are developing your application using Visual LANSA with a IBM i Master Repository, you will need to transfer data from one platform to another. In IBM i Master system the definitions required to run the Host Monitor and to export using the PC export can be created using the LANSA REQUEST(PCMAINT), or they can be created automatically by performing System Initialization or Partition Initialization from Visual LANSA.

The names of the translation tables used to convert data to and from EBCDIC and ASCII are included in these definitions.  These tables are only used by export to PC and the Host Monitor and NOT by LANSA Open or LANSA/SuperServer which have their own tables.

Refer to Create PC Definitions and Change PC Definitions in the LANSA for i User Guide for further details.
