Purpose

This document can be used as a guide to troubleshoot errors encountered during compiling COBOL programs after applying Campus Solutions bundles or fixes. It is aimed at resolving common errors like:

Operand XXXXX is not declared
Unknown COPY file XXCXXXXX specified
A scope-delimiter did not have a matching verb and was discarded.

where XXXXX is a variable that a COBOL lead program uses and is declared in a Copybook and XXCXXXXX is a Copybook.

A COBOL copybook is the source code that declares the name and data types of variables that
associated COBOL lead programs use. A copybook may be included in more than one COBOL lead program and a COBOL lead program can import more than one copybook. Copybooks typically have a letter 'C' as the third character in the name and the lead programs have a 'P'. For example:
Copybooks - SRCCATST.cbl and FACPKPKG.cbl
Lead Program - SARPCATST.cbl and FAPPKPKG.cbl

Please note that the first two characters are used to identify the product (SR is for Student Records and FA is for Financial Aid).
