encoding/transcoding error

I'm pulling data from a large SAP dataset.

Sporadically, I've been getting this error when I try to access the data:

ERROR: Some character data was lost during transcoding in the dataset SAP.'/bic/a0601'n. Either the data contains

       characters that are not representable in the new encoding or truncation occurred during transcoding.

I've tried the following, but I still sporadically receive the error when I attempt to pull the data from SAP.

data Activity (encoding=any);

data Activity (encoding=ASCIIANY);

data Activity (encoding=EBCDICANY);

With all the other data that I pull from SAP I do not receive any errors.

Any ideas?

Thank you.
