The E2I conversion from single-byte characters in any client character set to GRAPHIC always generates an SQL error. This error may be masked when constants are used because constants are processed internally as UNICODE.

For example, it is possible to insert GRAPHIC data (via '..' XC) from an ASCII character set into a GRAPHIC column; however, selecting that GRAPHIC column from the same ASCII character set returns an error.
