Is there a DARA command in SAS

We use SAS PC (9.2) for CATI work (telephone interviews), and we keep getting profile problems with one of our callers. I suspect that her name is (Dara) is being read as part of code. Any comments/ideas? I'm renaming her to use the last name, and that should solve the problem, but I wanted to check anyway.

Re: Is there a DARA command in SAS

There is a DATA statement, and, if you have big fingers:

1 dara one ;
WARNING 14-169: Assuming the symbol DATA was misspelled as dara.

2 x=1;
3 run ;

NOTE: The data set WORK.ONE has 1 observations and 1 variables.
NOTE: DATA statement used (Total process time):
real time 0.00 seconds
cpu time 0.00 seconds

So it could be SAS is trying too hard to be helpful, depending on the context where the name Dara is being used.
