Thanks for taking time here. I'm working on COBOL program. In the program, I'm comparing 2 fields. One has Upper case characters. Another field has lower case characters. FIELDA = APPLE FIELDB = apple I'd like to treat them as the same value.(FIELDA = FIELDB) Is there any reserved word of COBOL to convert lower case to upper case? Is there any way to convert them other than using array? Any advice will be appreciated. Again, thanks for taking your time and considerations.
