screen field value changes case - not desirable

Former Member

Hi ,

I have created a table control and 4 input fields with F4 functionality.

One of the filter is a name field with type CHAR and on selecting one value from the list using f4 functionality and hitting ENTER the case gets changed and i dont get my desired output based on the selected value.

For example: If "Kousar" is present in the dropdown and when i select this value, and hit ENTER

it changes to "KOUSAR" and it mismatches the table data as "Kousar" is present.

I cannot retrieve data from the transparent table as the field value doesnt match.

Plz send me some solution.

Also, can we use translate? If yes, then how?

Check the domain of the field in the table , check thru se11 in the domain you can find a check fox for "lowercase" that needs to be checked.

go to screen..

and select attributes tab..>select the special attributes tab>select the fifth header Upper/Lower case entry..for the field you want the data not to change..

or before comparing.. translate the work_area or line of table control and comparing field to uppercase..
