$NOCASE.STRINGS

 

This directive must appear before any executable statements in the program source and applies to the entire program module.

 

Selecting case insensitive string mode affects the relational operators (=, #, <, >, <=, >=), their multivalue function equivalents (EQS(), NES(), LTS(), GES(), LES(), GES()), the CHANGE(), CONVERT(), COUNT(), DCOUNT(), FIELD(), LAST(), INDEX() and SWAP() functions, the CONVERT, FIND, FINDSTR and LOCATE statements and pattern matching.
