Starting with MVS CICS release 3.2 and VSE CICS release 2.2, IBM introduced a feature that allowed CICS to handle case translation for CICS applications.
To make case translation by CICS work for CA Ideal, the following change must be made.
- On the TYPETERM definitions UCTRAN must be set to TRANID. Specifying TYPETERM UCTRAN(TRANID) causes the tranid to be translated to uppercase; other input is translated according to what is specified for PROFILE UCTRAN.
- On the profile definition associated with SCF-based transactions (IDEAL, DD) UCTRAN should be set to NO. This allows the terminal to run in mixed case mode.
