Hi,
I want to have lower case letters in the datasets that i create.

For eg,
I have a PS named XX.PS.LIST, and i want to have the lower case characters to be entered in the PS file. Bu , when i just type in and press Enter, all the lower case characters are converted to the upper case characters..

Can anyone tell me, how to solve this??

Thanks,

It'll solve the problem...

Hello Jinal,

If you want your DATA inside a file to be mixed case, use the info that Priyesh and Bill provided above.

If you want dataset names (DSNs) to have mixed case, sorry - that is not supported - which you will see if you go to the link Dave provided above.

Now ya know icon_biggrin.gif
