As you are new to the forums, you may not know that the IMS documentation is available via the forum. There is a "Manuals" link at the top of each web page and you can find most commonly used manuals linked to from that Manuals page.
You will want to become familiar with using the manuals as they have the correct info and you do not have to wait for a reply. If you read something that is not clear, post your question here and we can offer suggestions.
This from IBM:
Specifies for MSG TYPE=INPUT whether (YES) or not (NO) IMS? should perform upper case translation on this segment if the destination definition requests it (see the EDIT= parameter of the TRANSACT or NAME macro). The default is YES. If input segment data is in nongraphic format (packed decimal, EGCS, binary, and so forth), GRAPHIC=NO should be specified. When GRAPHIC=NO is specified, FILL=NULL is invalid for MFLDs within this segment.
