There are two ways to write built-in functions:

  function()

or:

  the function of

You are combining the two, and like it says, you are missing "of". You 
can fix it either of these ways:

  put the charToNum of char 10 of the mask of img"GOTTIT" into fld "fNEW"
  put charToNum(char 10 of the mask of img"GOTTIT") into fld "fNEW"
