Error message explanation

Dear All,

I was using a code to extract data through odbc connection, I used to get the data as intended but this time when I ran, I didnt select the full code, I missed to select the "proc" statement from my code. I got an error message and I ran the code with full selection as usual but, the SAS thrown an error message as shown below.


Please explain what is this error and the upseting fact is that once you get this message you cant run any other part of your stream without disconnecting from work.

The error is repeating in all further runs...

Are there any options to reset these errors and start working in the work without disconnecting..?

Pls help...

Re: Error message explanation

You have an unbalanced quotation mark. Try repeatedly submitting the following code until you get an error message pertaining to the %mend statement with no matching %macro statement.

*/; *’; *”; stop; run; quit; %mend;
