I used to work on mainframes, but I need more information.
Is it a flat file? Is it still on the IBM or is it now on a unix or windows platform? What are you using to do your search?
Usually if you move it from an IBM mainframe to a unix box you run it through a ebcdic/ascii conversion.

Ditto twice...what are you trying to accomplish? IBM has several standard tools that can easily convert the file for you when it leaves their machine. Also, if you are "searching for a record", are you yourself on the native platform? SQL works just as well in EBCDIC as it does in ASCII...
Give us some more info, maybe we can help.
