    Try the following in your SQL (example for DB2),

    cast(CHAR_COL as GRAPHIC(n) as CHAR_COL

    then DataStage should then read your columns as ustring (there is no difference in Datastage between e.g. CHAR extended unicode and NCHAR).

    In DB2 your have to be carefull that GRAPHIC/VARGRAPHIC have a max length of 128/16352 which is half the max length of CHAR/VARACHAR, so you may have to cast a CHAR bigger than 128 to VARGRAPHIC

    You could also try to fiddle around with your DB2CODEPAGE environment variable (set $DB2CODEPAGE in the administrator) which should affect the reading connector
