How can I receive case-sensitive data for my CICS program's screen?
CA Telon Application Generator
Setting CAPS=OFF in your CA Telon CICS program does not always ensure that data will come from a screen into a CA Telon generated program with both upper- and lower-case characters.
The following suggestions should help this:
- In the TDF, on the Update Screen Parms panel (S112), please set CAPS to OFF.
- CICS converts lower-case input characters to upper case automatically under some circumstances. The definition of the terminal and the transaction together determine whether translation occurs. Set the UCTRAN (upper-case translation) parameter on the PROFILE and TYPETERM definitions to NO.
For more information about how the UCTRAN parameter on these two definitions interact, see IBM's documentation regarding the CICS Resource Definition.
