When the CCSID on an existing physical files needs to be changed and the change is made in the RDP field as it is editable but it doesn't get passed to the physical file during a build through RDP and RTC.
Development has suggested this as a possible change for the customer: - if the developer "creates" a new source file in the workspace using the new source file wizard they can assign whatever CCSID they need to to the source file. This allows an lead programmer to create entirely new source files. - Once the source file is "created" in the workspace its CCSID value cannot be changed in the properties dialog, but you could change it by directly editing the .properties file for the file if you absolutely had to. - Adding a source file to a project from a target IBM i system uses the CCSID value of the file on the system ("add to i project") - Pushing a source file to a target system will use the CCSID value only for creating a file. It will never alter the CCSID of an existing file. - Accepting properties from RTC will override anything the user has entered for CCSID for a given source file. RTC always wins. If the value is changed by RTC it will be reflected immediately in the properties of the source file.
