    Does anyone have a quick overview of how to force all ESS edits made by employees to be in ALL UPPER CASE letters?

    We allow dependents entry, address changes, emergency contacts, etc. through ESS. Is there a "quick and easy" way to force all entries employees make to these editable fields through ESS to be in all upper case only?

    I know there is really no quick & easy way and assume it involves some combination of java edits, html edits and/or portal modifications through design studio. However, if anyone could provide some guidance as to the steps involved to make this happen, it would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you.

    From my experience, there is no "quick and easy" way to do this. Sorry, with Lawson, rarely if anything is "quick and easy".

    Really to do this, you need to touch each of the html/javascript field edits in each of the screens. You may look at the possibility of doing this using cascading style sheets.


    The other possible way is to enforce all caps maybe on the ESS tables of the database definitions itself. But then you're talking a whole other direction. I would not pursue this.

    I've never seen a requirement to have all caps in ESS data entries. What is the reason you need all Caps data entry using ESS?

    Thanks Roger.

    The reason we want to do this is for consistency, both on our own system and in the HIPAA834 files we create and send on to our insurance carriers for electronic eligibility feeds.

    With 3500 end users, we can't rely on them doing so simply by us adding a statement to the screens requesting that they use all caps.

    I remember years ago for the HIPPA files we had to import them into Excel and then capatalize them there.

    I am not the technical person but I could forward an e-mail I received from someone else who gave us the information. My e-mail is mgyurisin@summithealth.org.
