I have an ASP.Net application accessing DB2 UDB 7 on z/OS thru DB2 Connect v8. My page has as multiline text box where the user can enter several sentences by hitting the enter key. I am saving the value in a VARCHAR column on the database.
When I retrieve it later for display on the page I see the line-feed between the sentences however I am also seeing control character ( a clear square).
Any ideas on what is going on ? How can I get rid of this annoyance.
I am expecting the conversion between ASCII to EBCIDIC at both ends to take care of this ..
