ERROR: Java virtual machine exception. java.lang.OutOfMemoryError: Java heap space.

Hi, I'm not sure where to ask this question but hopefully someone can help.  I'm running Windows 7 and when I try to use a proc panel on my large data sets(400K up to 1mil+ obs) I get this error:

ERROR: Java virtual machine exception. java.lang.OutOfMemoryError: Java heap space.

The thing is it still gives me regression analysis and coefficients.  I'm not sure if the analysis is correct or not or exactly what is going on.  Can anyone help?

Hi Warnerj,

See if this SAS Note helps:

If not, you will probably want to open a track with Tech Support, and send the entire log showing what your doing.
