E2E Forum › General Discussion › fixed length file structure with DBCS values
File structure consist of DBCS and non DBCS fields, output file somehow are not aligned
Is there a way to fix this issue?
With DBCS you have to take into account
– the number of characters – the number of bytes (by which a character is represented) – the rendering by the editor (proportional or non-proportional font)
As your are not very specific about our problem (“output file somehow not aligned”), it’s hard to give an advice.
If you open a “DBCS” file with Notepad++, you will notice that columns may be not aligned, but if you have a look at the “column indicator” you will see that the number of characters is correct.
