DI Job not able to open EBCDIC format file


I have a job that uses cobol copybook for schema and converts source flat file to target xml. When I hard code the flat file path in cobol copybook format window, my job works fine. But when I try to use global variables that hold source and target file path+name it fails.

I get this funky looking error:

Data flow DF_X Cannot open file <à&#154;/øøÊÁÅÈ??%Ë Ñ_ø?ÊÈÁÊÑ_ø?ÊÈ/øø%ÑÄ/ÈÑ?>^ &#148;* &#148; &#147;&#152;&#145; ä!(&<áèá>. Please check its path and permissions.

I can't even see proper file name in error. My flat files are EBCDIC and are transmitted as binary by FTP process.
