MEMSIZE issue

Hi everyone, I'm having an issue with the syntax for setting MEMSIZE=MAX 

 

Do I use: options MEMSIZE=MAX at the beginning of my program? Doesn't seem to be working.

 

Thanks very much.

Re: MEMSIZE issue

I think you need to set that in your config file.

You can set the BUFNO and MEMSIZE options in the configuration file. MEMSIZE cannot be set after SAS starts.
-BUFNO 10
-MEMSIZE 4G

 

This thread has more information and may help answer your next questions, how do I find the config file and change it, if I don't have admin privileges.

Re: MEMSIZE issue

You can confirm your MEMSIZE setting by running PROC OPTIONS.
