Please help. I have the following error when running my proc means:
ERROR: PROC MEANS was terminated prematurely due to a memory shortage. Adjusting MEMSIZE and/or SUMSIZE may allow normal processing
ERROR: The SAS System stopped processing this step because of insufficient memory.
How do I resolve this?

Set the SAS System option SUMSIZE=Maximum.
it would help to run the proc means
if still not ,then need to increase the MEMSIZE or REALMEMSIZE .

Are you using lots of class variables and analysis variables? If so you might consider controlling which combinations are being used. Also, if this is generating large tables you may look into sending the output to a dataset instead of the results window as the displays in memory can eat a lot of resources.
