I have a string-a combination of rich text and tagged text(HTML snippet) in Windows. I need to insert these records into a Clob column of a Db2 table ressiding on Mainframe.

Can you please suggest a suitable approach for this?

To capture the tagged text contents(in unicode)-we may have to FTP these files in Binary format into Mainframe.

How to convert these Binary into Chars before inserting them into Db2.

Also, considering the volume-are there any other alternate approaches?
