4GL_COLUMN_CASE configuration variable

Restriction: This topic applies only when a Database Connectors license has been installed via the Micro Focus License Management System.

This configuration variable causes Database Connectors to leave the case of the field names found in the XFD unchanged. Normally, all field names are converted to lower case by the Connector (except for Oracle, which converts all values to upper case), and all hyphens are converted to underscores.

Valid values are:

UNCHANGED     All field names are used unchanged when the database table is created.

Be aware that hyphens are not converted to underscores in this situation. Most databases do not accept hyphens in column names, so the XFD must be modified by hand to replace hyphens with underscores



Field names are converted to lower case and hyphens are converted to underscores
