I appreciate that this is a bit of a "non" problem, but I thought I'd put it out there.
We need to do a WEB SEND and include the parameters
Code:

CLICONVERT                           
CHARACTERSET ( W-CHARSET             )

At the same time, we need to use the same sort of call (in the same section/program) without these parameters (for example, to send a PDF that shouldn't be converted at all)
We tried with a blank value in W-CHARSET, but that wasn't popular (return codes 16/45 if I remember).

Is there any form of characterset value that performs no conversion but is a valid value?

misi01,

Two options.

1. For the case of No conversion pass the same charset value that it was created. For example if you created the PDF with codeset 278 (FIN/SWEDEN EBCDIC) then pass the same as W-CHARSET. So even if it converts then it would use the same conversion table.

2. Code 2 different paragraphs one with CLICONVERT and other with NOCLICONVERT and invoke the paragraph depending on the requirement.

Thanks.

We'll almost certainly go down the second road.

Just thought it would be worth asking.
