XX = YES/NO

Environment

Component : CA ACF2 for z/OS

Resolution

the ASIS on the RECEIVE that is now being done is not effective for the first RECEIVE of the transaction. However, if ACFAEUSC functions in conversational mode, the RECEIVE of the formatted screen is not the first one done, and the lower-case will be preserved. This still requires
ACFAEUSC to run conversationally, but the terminals UCTRAN setting does not need to change. The APAR you have installed is still
required.

In order the have ACFAEUSC run conversationally, please make the following change to the source code, reassemble and NEWCOPY it in.

There is a line in the code as follows:
PCTL DC X'00' USER ALTERABLE CONTROL BYTE. DEFAULT = X'00'

Change the value to x'80' so it looks like this:
PCTL DC X'80' USER ALTERABLE CONTROL BYTE. DEFAULT = X'00'

and ACFAEUSC will run conversationally.

Following that line is documentation about running conversationally that should be reviewed
