Help Apostrophe and upper case letter in name!

Hello everyone, I have a question.
I'm an IMG, and I have requested an ID Number on the ECFMG website, and I had to write my name on the passport which is written as "Na'el"... after I got the ID number, my name was saved on the website with an uppercase E as "Na'El". My name on the passport, however, is all uppercase "NA'EL".

Is this a problem? should I request to correct my name and go through all the trouble? Have anyone had any similar situation to this?

Thanks ...

No. That won't be a problem. You are good to go.
