Open Dataset for input in BINARY MODE not working after ECC 6.0 upgrade

Hi All,

Our requirement is to download an XML file from the application server and there is a customized program to download these files.

This program uses the statement, Open dataset ...for input in BINARY MODE

and it works perfect for 4.7. There were no issues. But, after the upgrade to ECC 6.0 this does not work.

When the data is read in ECC 6.0 , it is shown in some special characters and it could not be opened with XML editor and the file is not completely downloaded. I read through the forum and tried the following statement as well,

Open dataset....for input in LEGACY BINARY MODE.

After this statement, there were no special characters, but there is a blank space introduced before every character.

Example : TEST(actual)

T E S T (After the legacy binary mode)

Could you please let me know if there is any solution to rectify this problem. Appreciate your help.

Thanks a million.
