2.2.11 Locale uppercasing required

In a client/server configuration, this option is obtained from an IBM i server and is set during system initialisation on the PC.

The option is only used with fields that do not have the attribute LC (Lowercase entry allowed) specified. Unless LC is specified, a field's input values in the range a to z will be converted to upper case (that is A to Z).

On the IBM i this option is set to:

YES if characters outside the a to z range must also be converted to upper case, for example, from à to À

NO, if special characters are to remain as lower case while those in the a to z range are converted to upper case. This could be the result: RESUMé.

For information regarding field attributes, refer to Input Attributes in the Technical Reference Guide.
