Hi all,

I am trying to edit IDOC in bd87.

for eg. for

field A = x, i am editing this to '123k54'

after editing the value is change to.

field A = 123K54,

please observe that the 'K' is changed to caps.

is there any way that i get the same 'k' in the value.

please suggest.

Thanks in Advance

I think it depends on the field that you are editing. Look at the data element and then the domain to which its being referred. If its marked as CASE SENSITIVE then it will not change the data into uppercase. Otherwise it might.

Thank you for info.

i think you are right.

but, i have checked the domain ,here the case sensitive flag is set.(LOWER CASE).

according to this function it should allow as we enter.

its not happening in my case.

is there any object to be activated while using it for IDOC?

What is the IDOC you are using, please point to the segment and the field that you are using?

In this case I don't think there is anything else that needs to be activated.

Hi It is not that IDOC is case sensitive .

When ever u enter some thing in editable field

and say enter it will become automatically CApitals.

that is sap's functionality.
