9/30/08 Use SQL to have i5/OS automatically handle a data type conversion

Use SQL (or any other HLL) to compare character and graphic data in two different products where their database CCSIDs are different (e.g. CCSID 65535 and CCSID 13488). This can be done without handling the data type conversion within SQL itself. All you need to do is to ensure the SQL program is running with job attributes that point to a system CCSID. When this is done, i5/OS automatically handles the conversion.
