If you have used the "Black" ABS Cement then yes you have used the wrong cement and yes it is sawzall time....
There is an all purpose cement that is clear and can be used on ABS or, PVC but not combined.
If you use a combination of ABS and PVC pipes then a transition cement may be used in non-pressure applications in some areas, check your locally used code.
