The iForms Server errors when trying to respool a spool file with the following message.

UnsupportedEncodingException: CCSID 65535


Modify the CCSID of the iSeries user profile that iForms Server is using to access the iSeries. Modfiy the user and set the CCSID field to a valid value such as 37.


This is caused by the iSeries system CCSID being set to 65535 and the User Profile being set to *SYSVAL. The iForms Server automaticly converts respooled files from CCSID 1252 to the CCSID on the iSeries User Profile. CCSID 65535 is NOT a valid conversion and causes the UnsupportedEncodingException.
