I'm looking to produce a mixed-case Excel file name in WebFOCUS. I use this --

ON TABLE PCHOLD AS Weekly_History_of_Docs_and_ICNs FORMAT EXL07 OPEN

I get an excel file opened that is all lower case. A minor thing, but any recommendations?

Sorry, it is either all upper case or all lower case on Windows

I thought there was a way, but perhaps that was on Linux

It seems odd, because hold files sent to SQL*Server tables create upper-case names, hold files sent to Excel lower-case. I'm surprised case would come into it in either state, seems to me you pass a string of characters along and the destination slaps them on. Clearly it's more complicated than that.
