Problem

With WinSpool/400 and DataImport or report converters, data is being offset by one byte or shifted by one character during copying, causing some reports to be offset by a single column.
 
If the WSPIGCDTA data area in library WINSPOOL is set to *YES, then spool-file data can possibly be offset by a single character when copying a spool file.  This field can be set to *YES when copying spool files with double-byte data.  

Solution

Upgrade the Winspool Library to version 3.69 or greater.
 
-or-
 
Turn off DBCS by running the following commands:
 
Disabling IGCDTA Parameter (No DBCS Reports):
 
CHGDTAARA DTAARA(WINSPOOL/WSPIGCDTA) VALUE(*NO)
 
Enabling IGCDTA Parameter (Double-Byte Reports):
 
CHGDTAARA DTAARA(WINSPOOL/WSPIGCDTA) VALUE(*YES)
