About this task

Perform the following steps to create a sample translation table that changes lowercase characters to uppercase characters:


  1. Make a copy of the sample translation table located at cd_dir/ndm/src/def_send.sxlt.
  2. Open the new translation table with a text editor.
  3. Add the following lines to the bottom of the table. It should look like the table in Creating a Translation Tablewhen you have added this information.
    # Change the lowercase characters to uppercase.
    C1 C2 C3 C4 C5 C6 C7 C8 C9 D1 D2 D3 D4 D5 D6 D7
    D8 D9 E2 E3 E4 E5 E6 E7 E8 E9
  4. Copy the modified file to cd_dir/ndm/src and name it UpperCaseEBC.sxlt.
  5. Compile the new translation table using the following syntax:
    ndmxlt -s../src/UpperCaseEBC.sxlt -oUpperCaseEBC.xlt
  6. To use this translation table, add the following sysopts parameter to the copy statement:
    copy from file=filename 
         to   file=filename
