The Auto Complete feature recalls what you type, and automatically makes suggestions to help populate fields as it learns common commands that are repeated. By default, typing is saved with the screen location, and suggested when you type at that screen location again.
This feature is not available with VT sessions.
To use Auto Complete with uppercase only fields, clear the Use case sensitivity for suggestions option. Uppercase only fields are required to support alpha data on Japanese systems. They are also common on IBM System i systems for which 5250 emulation is used.
