Does anyone know if PIDs are case sensitive.

My response mean "yes" you can, but I don't think that will help you much necessarily...

That they are case sensitive (by ability) means that some of them might use or expect it.

If you are uncertain, then my recommendation would be to find the GET PARAMETER in the coding which is using this, and then locate where the standard code uses a SET PARAMETER for it and test the transaction if possible to see how the parameter value is set in the standard (intended) use. Perhaps test it with different settings as well...

Then set the PIDs accordingly if it makes a difference for that PID. It might also be irrelevant if the program takes care of it....

Check transaction ABAPDOCU for the ABAP statement "GET PARAMETER" and "SET PARAMETER" for more infos about PIDs. There are also some threads here about GET/SET parameters and not expecting security gains from them...

Cheers,

Julius
