NOTE: The SAS System stopped processing this step because of errors. SAS will underline the error where it detects it, but sometimes the actual error is in a different place in your program, typically the preceding line. 3. I assigned the libname. My SAS program did not like the name mylibrary for whatever reason.
If this does not work, I suggest that you contact you co-worker to ask him to test this file, and maybe resend it in case it has been corrupted. /Linus Data Because the quoted string is invalid in a DATA statement, SAS stops processing here and creates no observations for either data set. NOTE: There were 8 observations read from the data set WORK.AUTO.

Diagnosing Execution-Time Errors Several types of errors are detected at execution time. WARNING: The data set WORK.AUTO2 may be incomplete. How was it moved to it's current position? To debug the program, either the raw data can be repositioned or the INPUT statement can be rewritten, remembering that all the data lines were shifted at least one space to
FOOTNOTE 1: See the Appendix for a complete listing of the input data that is used to create the data sets in this section. Previous Page | Next Page | Top Although a program may include several steps, these steps are processed separately. Understanding the log enables you to identify and correct errors in your program. The errors are flagged, starting with the first message that line 6 contains invalid data for the variable YEAR.
Adding a proc sort before this data step corrects this problem. When this step was stopped there were 0 observations and 7 variables. Execution-time errors include the following: illegal mathematical operations observations out of order for BY-group processing an incorrect reference in an INFILE statement (for example, misspelling or otherwise incorrectly stating the external To view the RateIT tab, click here.
ERROR: File WORK.MATCHES_MH_DIF_LAL_G5.DATA does not exist. his comment is here SAS lists on the log the values that are stored in the program data vector. When this block of code is run, the program would appear to be doing nothing. SAS attempts to execute the program logically based on the statements that it contains, according to the steps outlined earlier in this section.

Debug your programs one step at a timeSAS executes programs in steps, so even if you have an error in a step written in the beginning of your program, SAS will WARNING: Data set WORK.AUTO2 was not replaced because this step was stopped. navigate here There should be two observations and there is only one.
Put the SAS data set in a directory, e.g. But does it give us the intended result? Since there is no var option in proc print, the program fails. It runs without an error message.
Because the DATA statement must end with a semicolon, SAS assumes that INFILL is a data set name and that two data sets are being created: OUT.ERROR1 and WORK.INFILL. Sometimes there is a single error in the beginning of the program that causes the others. Always review the SAS log for notes and warning as well as errors. Instead, since the dollar sign is missing, SAS assumes that "a" is of numeric type, such as an integer or a real number and SAS expects to encounter a numeric value
