For information about Internal-to-External (I2E) conversions and how exceptions are handled in sessions where Unicode Pass Through is enabled, see Exporting From a UNICODE Server Character Set .
I2E conversion generates an exception when a character in the server repertoire cannot be converted to the client repertoire.
For example, an attempt to convert a multibyte KANJISJIS character to an ASCII character generates a conversion exception.
For most I2E character conversion, exceptions are ignored and the offending character is converted to the predefined error character for the target client character set.
