 Customers receive errors similar to the following:  

Remote Program SRPCERC failed with return code:  8006. Reason:  Invalid Datatype specified.  In section SQLRT:  EXECUTE-STMTEPST:SQUESTION:2230-DROP-TYPE4(UPDATE-ENRL6)(2,-1)  AT ENRL_RE_HDR_WRK.ENRL_REQ_RC_PB.FieldChange  PCPC:639  Statement:10.  

The key components of this error message are the references to a Cobol job and FieldChange peoplecode associated with a Pushbutton type field.

The customer may also find that the same cobol job executed on their process scheduler (usually the batch version of the same job) works fine, and only the online versions appear to be failing when they execute the cobol from a pushbutton.
