Auto-Caps in DSPF

The parser knows that the field name and/or keywords need to be in caps; why doesn't the editor put them in caps.

Use Case:

enter field name in lower case and see that editor converts it to uppercase.

    You can set the preferences for Automatic uppercasing. Can you please check to see if you have that on?
    To check the setting, go to:
    1) Window -> Preferences
    2) Select Remote Systems -> Remote Systems LPEX Editor -> IBM i Parsers -> DDS
    3) Check that Automatic uppercasing is selected.
    This should allow the prompt and the editor to automatically uppercase your source.
