Thanks fpmurphy! I'm glad I finally know what's going on.

I also found some additional info:

blog.SOAL.org Writing Portable Shell Scripts on z/OS UNIX

The suggestion here is to create a separate script that will detect the codeset and convert IBM-1047 script into that codeset.

I think I already know the answer, but is there any way (in good practice) to make this work from one script?
