EZTC0125E >>> $ fieldname not defined
EZTC0069E >>> $ cannot compare alpha to numeric
This compile error occurs when using %CBLCNVRT COBOL VS or just %CBLCNVRT.
The field is not defined in the COBOL VS macros. However, it is unlikely that anyone is actually using this old, unsupported IBM compiler.
Please use a supported IBM compiler and make sure that apar RO05496 is also applied.
