Hi All,

I have a text field in my infotype screen which is editable.

By default, the enteries are in CAPS.

What do i need to do, if i want the field to accept "Caps" and small letters aswell?

Thanks in advance for all the responses.

HI sundar,

To achieve this functionality u need to change the attributes of the text filed.

In screen painter, you double click the text field, one attribute window appears, then in Dict tab you will find the check box Upper/Lower case, if check this check box, the filed will accept both Upper and lower case.

Hope this Helps,

If you are working with a standard SAP infotype, fields and Screens, this change is considered a modification.

The other thing that you should check is if your field is tied to something defined in the data dictionary, then upper/lowercase is also attached to the domain of your field definition. Changing it only on the screen may not necessarily populate the field with upper/lowercase.

If you click on the "definition" tab of the domain definition you will see a checkbox called upper/lower case.

Best Regards,

Chris H.
