Hi, I was wxpediting thru a batch cobol module. I have noticed that i am not able to see the small letters against the variables. It is showing like (ex. if the first letter is caps and rest is small, it shows like this 'S....'.
even if my variable value is 'Small' i am seeing like this 'S....'.

I am using XPED version 7.6. Can anyone please let me know if there is any command to make it seen. Thanks in advance experts!

"small letters" are referred to as lowercase.

are these lowercase containing fields within an input file? qsam or vsam.
if so, try browsing the files (in ISPF) and see if the lowercase is properly displayed.
if not, you may have a code page problem, that someone else can address (Robert Sample, Marso, SUPERK, and others on the board).

displayable data does not require a command to 'display'.
(uppercase, lowercase & numerics in alphanumeric defined variables
and numerics in display defined variables)

how are these variables defined?

The variable is normal PIC X(05) one. I can able to see the first upper case letter while xped. other ones are displaying when i keep the variable during xped. I am not facing any abends or impact on result.

My question why xped is not showing the lower case value of variables which in keep.

1. are you ever able to see the lowercase during xped? outside of KEEP.
how about as the instruction executes, the variables are displayed. Are the lowercase displayed then?

2. have you tried to browse the file outside of xped, like ISPF Browse?
Can you see the lowercase there?

reason I ask number 2:
  1. you have not given an adequate answer to 1
  2. the answer to 2 will/could indicate a code page problem.


I have never had any problem with lowercase display.
lowercase is a 'displayable character' of the code page in play.

what happens when you go to working storage in xped, and do a hex display?

what do you expect to have in LSRQ-SEVERITY?
have you gone to working-storage to see what is in LSRQ-SEVERITY?
have you done the display hex line command for the KEEP item?

PrabakarV,
at this point I would scroll thru the PF1 (help) for xped.

have you looked at the working-storage definition of LSRQ-SEVERITY
(Find first LSRQ-SEVERITY).

if the display in working-storage is 'non-displayable' char,
we have exhausted the limit of my help.

Contact your site support group for help. I suspect the Xpediter terminals, which are defined separately in VTAMLST, are probably not set up for lower case characters. If so, only your site support group can make the necessary changes.

Did you try the command 'SET LOWCASE ASIS' on the command line/input script file? This allows the lower case alphabets to be displayed in XPEDITER.
