When attempting the COBOL usage clause, COMP-5, in a copybook, CA Datacom Datadictionary processes it as numeric instead of binary.
DDICF using as input a COBOL data layout containing COMP-5 does not recognize this usage and generates incorrect Datadictionary field/column definitions.
An incorrect data type and length is used, possibly introducing errors.
This is corrected by the following APARs:
