Thanks to all who responded.

The problem was that the program (and display file) the client was executing
was from 2004 (version 1 of the application, while the current version is
6.7). That old program only allowed uppercase characters in the entry
field. That was changed back in 2006!

Thanks again.

Would it be useful to look at that user's profile? Or, create a new profile
and see if the behavior changes when the new profile logs in?

I ask this because at one site where they use a lot of Sys/36 stuff I have
two profiles to use, depending on what I am doing. The Sys/36 profile sets
my environment and makes all my command characters upper case.

Anyone run into this before?

I have a client that is using Client Access and to which we provide
a software access code, which includes lowercase characters. However,
when he copies the value (which we give him) to the clipboard and
pastes it into the entry value of the green screen program (which we
provide), it converts it to all uppercase. The fault is NOT in the
program because the entry field allows lowercase. Caps Lock is NOT on.

Is there some setting in Client Access that autoconverts all
keyboard entry into uppercase?
