Double " delimiter issue with HPU

When unloading from an Imagecopy using HPU, data gets unloaded like this :

" 12345"~"SMA "O" DRAIN TILE CO. LTD. 05

while with DSNUTILB, it gets unloaded like this:

" 12345"~"SMA ""O"" DRAIN TILE CO. LTD. 05.

If you look at 'O' in the company name, there are double " with DSNUTILB while just single " using HPU. Double quotes as a delimiter is a must have for me as I am replacing DSNUTILB with HPU and it is impacting 30 + jobs. Without a fix, I would not be able to move to HPU due to downstream impact.I am want my data to be consistent with what is created by DSNUTILB
