This Natural profile parameter controls lower-case to upper-case translation of input characters.

Default setting OFF  
Dynamic specification yes  
Specification within session yes To disable or enable lower-case to upper-case translation dynamically within the active Natural session, you should use the terminal commands %L or %U
Application programming interface USR1005N See SYSEXT - Natural Application Programming Interfaces in the Utilities documentation.


  1. This parameter does not apply to Natural stack data which was placed on the Natural stack by the STACK statement.
  2. Lower/upper-case translation can also be performed by a TP monitor before control is given to Natural. The corresponding TP-monitor parameters for lower/upper-case translation also have to be reviewed to ensure correct translation.
  3. A user-supplied translation table can be used to perform translation from lower case to upper case; see NTUTAB1 macro (contained in the UTAB1 profile parameter description).
