Problem:

Getting bad characters within a PDF when sending an email message via Email Report Server/400 and MAILSPLF, or when getting created from Domino Report Server/400.

Solution:

The AS/400 system appears to be running a non-US CCSID (Coded character set identifier), so you need to run the following AS/400 command prior to running the Email Report Server output queue monitor command ERSMON.
 
Running output queue monitor:
CHGJOB CCSID(37)    
ERSMON     
CHGJOB CCSID()
 
Running MAILSPLF:
CHGJOB CCSID(37)    
MAILSPLF
CHGJOB CCSID()
 
After running the converter they can use the CHGJOB to switch back to the original job CCSID. 
 
Note: Run the CHGJOB/ERSMON commands listed below interactively for initial tests or write a CL program to contain these commands if running in batch mode.
 
To display the original CCSID value, the user can run the following command before changing the CCSID for the current sign on session. Look for the correct CCSID (Coded character set identifier)
