As of December 1, 2020, Focal Point is retired and repurposed as a reference repository. We value the wealth of knowledge that's been shared here over the years. You'll continue to have access to this treasure trove of knowledge, for search purposes only.

New TIBCO Community Coming Soon
In early summer, TIBCO plans to launch a new community—with a new user experience, enhanced search, and expanded capabilities for member engagement with answers and discussions! In advance of that, the current myibi community will be retired on April 30. We will continue to provide updates here on both the retirement of myibi and the new community launch.

What You Need to Know about Our New Community
We value the wealth of knowledge and engagement shared by community members and hope the new community will continue cultivating networking, knowledge sharing, and discussion.

During the transition period, from April 20th until the new community is launched this summer, myibi users should access the TIBCO WebFOCUS page to engage.

[SOLVED] Set values to lower case

How do I make the values of a variable lower case? When I run this:

-SET &USR = CNCTUSR('a12');

-TYPE &USR

my username comes in lowercase. When my coworkers runs it, their name comes in upper case. I want all values returned to be lower case. How do I do this?

-SET &IBIC_user = 'SCOTT MATSON';
-SET &IBIC_user = LOCASE(&IBIC_user.LENGTH, &IBIC_user, 'A&IBIC_user.LENGTH');
-TYPE &IBIC_user
-EXIT

It pays to do a search of the documentation.

If this has solved your issue, please update your first post in this thread and add [SOLVED] or [CLOSED] to the title
