Re: PROC APPEND.

What SAS version and maintenance (service pack) level are you running? Also, it appears that you may be attempting to append to an MVS (IBM mainframe) SAS data library that resides on multiple DASD volumes. Please confirm this observation? Also, how was this SAS data library (member) created? And reveal all SAS code you are executing to update/append to the file for clarification.

Also, you should run a PROC CONTENTS DATA=._ALL_; RUN;
against your SAS data library to confirm that it is usable.
